Immediate Management of Anaphylaxis Awareness - Distance Learning (CPD)
An Anaphylactic shock, or anaphylaxis, is a life-threatening, serious allergic reaction to an allergen such as food substances or insect stings. If it is not treated appropriately, it may cause death.
When administering a medication, it is important to recognise and differentiate between allergic reactions and the potentially life-threstening anaphylactic reactions immediately. It is also essential to determine whether the individual has had allergic or anaphylactic response to the medication in the past or prior to administration.
Topics include the safe treatment of severe allergic reactions and relevant basic life support techniques.
The full course content is:
- The legalities of treating Anaphylaxis
- Common causes of allergic reactions
- Recognition of the signs and symptoms
- Administration of auto-injectors
- Recording the use of auto-injectors
- Preparing to carry out basic life support
