Duration: 6 hours
Our Ofqual regulated Level 3 Immediate Management of Anaphylaxis course complies fully with the requirements of the Health & Safety Executive.
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 can be life-threatening.
This training is for qualified First Aiders and Emergency First Aiders to enable them to recognise and treat anaphylaxis safely and effectively.
This 6-hour course enables delegates to: -
• Describe anaphylaxis
• Identify triggers for anaphylaxis
• Describe life threatening problems associated with anaphylaxis
• Conduct an initial assessment using the ABCDE approach (primary survey)
• Demonstrate the recovery position
• Perform effective CPR
• Use a defibrillator
• Explain the treatment for anaphylaxis
• Identify key features of adrenaline-auto injectors
• Prepare medication for administration during anaphylaxis treatment
• Demonstrate the safe use of an adrenaline auto-injector
Our courses are very “hands-on” as we believe actually practicing the techniques is a far more effective way of learning. Practical demonstrations and exercises supported by on-screen presentations and lots of verbal interaction is our way of training.
This qualification lasts for 3 years. However, it is recommended that during the 3-year period, the learners attend annual refresher courses.
