How Auvi-Q is different

Auvi-Q provides electronic voice-guided instructions to assist people in administering an epinephrine injection.  It also has a convenient pocket-sized shape and auto-retracting needle. This advanced design makes the Auvi-Q easy to use and easy to carry.

Why patients and caregivers prefer Auvi-Q

Most patients and caregivers in a recent study preferred the size, shape and method of instruction of Auvi-Q compared to the well-known EpiPen*. Plus, Auvi-Q is the #1 prescribed epinephrine auto-injector among allergists**.

Why did HealthFirst switch to Auvi-Q?

Due to recent national manufacturer drug shortages, the supply of epinephrine auto-injectors has been significantly limited, affecting patients and healthcare providers. With HealthFirst’s commitment to keeping emergency medical kits up to date and ready to use when required, we engaged with all manufacturers of epinephrine auto-injectors and determined the most reliable supply is with Auvi-Q.
