Jext® comes in two different doses. 300 micrograms for patients weighing greater than 30kg, and 150 micrograms for patients weighing between 15 – 30 kg.
Step 1: Grasp the Jext® in your dominant hand (the one you use to write with) with your thumb closest to the yellow cap.
Step 2: Pull off the yellow cap with your other hand.
Step 3: Place the black injector tip against your outer thigh, holding the injector at a right angle (approx. 90°) to the thigh.
Step 4: Push the black tip firmly into your outer thigh until you hear a ‘click’ confirming the injection has started, then keep it pushed in. Hold the injector firmly in place against the thigh for 10 seconds (a slow count to 10) then remove. The black tip will extend automatically and hide the needle.
Step 5: Massage the injection area for 10 seconds. Seek immediate medical help.
SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION: Call 999 or 112 for Ireland, ask for an ambulance and say “anaphylaxis”. If you are unable to make the call, get someone else to call for you.
BE PREPARED: Use a second Jext® after 5-15 minutes if the symptoms do not improve. Always carry an extra Jext® with you.
