Anaphylaxis and Autoinjectors

Highfield’s Anaphylaxis and Autoinjector Short Course is designed to help you understand the risks of a severe allergic reaction and how to administer emergency treatment. Anaphylaxis is an extreme and potentially life-threatening allergic reaction, which results in rapid chemical changes in the body. In the UK it is estimated that almost 20% of the population is affected by at least one allergic disorder.

 

Autoinjectors offer fast-acting relief to somebody suffering an anaphylactic reaction. The successful administration of a device can prevent serious consequences and provide enough time for emergency services to attend and treat the sufferer.
