The length of the needle of the  Jext® 0.15 mg is not 15.7 mm as mentioned in the paper, but 13 mm. After correcting the needle length for  Jext®, the results of the study do not change aside for those involving  Jext®. The results of the primary outcome variable for  Jext® are now the same as the other high pressure EAIs (HPEAIs) and do not lead to intra-osseous injections 38% but 11% between 15 and 30 kg. This is the same risk as the  Epipen® and the Auvi-Q®.Author details1 Women’s and Children’s Health, University of Uppsala, Uppsala, Sweden. 2 Faculty of Science, McGill University, Montreal, Canada. 3 Faculty of Medi-cine, University British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada. 4 Goodman School of Business, Brock University, St. Catharines, Canada. 5 Farncombe Family Digestive Health Unit, McMaster University, Hamilton, Canada. 6 Department of Medicine, Western University, London, Canada. 7 Department of Medicine, McMaster University, Hamilton, ON, Canada.
