Anaphylaxis first aid course

Severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) can kill without immediate first aid. The UK is one of the top countries in the world for incidence of allergies. Allergies affect approximately one in three of the UK population and each year numbers grow by 5% with as many as half of those affected being children.

Anaphylaxis is the most severe form of allergic reaction. Common causes are insect stings, foods and some medication. It is life threatening and requires immediate first aid (an auto-injector) and emergency medical assistance.

The likelihood is that someone around you could have a severe allergy and this must form part of  your first aid needs assessment. This course is aligned with skills for health, for anyone who needs training in how and when to use an auto-injector in the treatment of anaphylaxis.
