Our anaphylaxis awareness course is designed to give you the confidence in identifying anaphylaxis and an understanding of how to manage a person suffering with anaphylactic shock.  This course explains the signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis, possible ‘triggers’ and how to treat effectively using first-aid with an auto-injector/epi-pen.  With over 20,000 people being admitted to hospital annually due to allergic reactions, and with around 20 deaths per year from anaphylactic shock, timely recognition and treatment is crucial.
