Anaphylaxis First Aid Training FAQs
What is Anaphylaxis?
Anaphylaxis is essentially a severe allergic reaction that can affect many systems within the body, and is generally triggered by a specific allergen such as bee stings or a certain food type.
Who does Anaphylaxis affect?
Anaphylactic shock can affect anyone at any age, although it is still quite rare. Anaphylaxis can be life-threatening meaning carers should be aware of the causes and symptoms.
Who is this course aimed at?
Having a first-aider on-site, who knows how to react in the case of an attack, can significantly reduce the risks associated with such an attack. The first aider can also help to minimise the exposure to the trigger in the first place. It is highly recommended for those working in the childcare sector but is equally suitable for designated workplace first-aiders.
What will I learn on an anaphylaxis first-aid course?
Candidates on an anaphylaxis first-aid course will learn about anaphylactic shock, how to deal with an allergic reaction, how to use auto-injectors and how to administer CPR. The course also looks at causes of allergic reactions which ranges from exposure to certain foods to bee stings.
