Anaphylaxis, or Anaphylactic shock, is a life-threatening, serious allergic reaction to an allergen such as food substances, medicines or insect stings. If it is not treated quickly and appropriately, it can cause death. This training is for qualified First Aiders and Emergency First Aiders as well as healthcare professionals and others to enable them to recognise and treat Anaphylaxis safely and effectively.
When administering Anaphylaxis medication, it is important to recognise and differentiate between allergic reactions and the potentially life-threatening anaphylactic reactions immediately. It is also essential to determine whether the individual has had an allergic or anaphylactic response to the medication in the past or prior to administration.
