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.
The course outlines how anaphylaxis can be caused by a broad range of ‘triggers’, such as insect stings, foods, for example nuts and shellfish, latex and medicines, such as penicillin.
