New Epi Pen Technology

Sanofi has announce the new wave of Epi-Pens..."Auvi-Q is the first-and-only epinephrine auto-injector with audio and visual cues for the emergency treatment of life-threatening allergic reactions in people who are at risk for or have a history of anaphylaxis. The size and shape of a credit card and the thickness of a smart phone, Auvi-Q is a breakthrough in epinephrine auto-injector device design that talks patients and caregivers step-by-step through the injection process."

I haven't seen or tried these yet, but I will be bringing it up with our allergist at our next appointment.  I've heard the cost is less than what one might expect, no more than the traditional epi (and possibly even less??)
