This course is suitable for any person who needs to be aware of the diagnosis and treatment of anaphylactic reactions.
What is Anaphylaxis?
Anaphylaxis is an extreme and severe allergic reaction. The whole body is affected, often within minutes of exposure to the allergen but sometimes after hours. The right Anaphylaxis training can make a huge difference to a person's recovery.
Common causes include foods such as peanuts, tree nuts (e.g. almonds, walnuts, cashews, brazils), sesame, fish, shellfish, dairy products and eggs. Non-food causes include wasp or bee stings, natural latex (rubber), penicillin or any other drug or injection. In some people, exercise can trigger a severe reaction – either on its own or in combination with other factors such as food or drugs (e.g. aspirin).
