Course Outline

Level 3 Immediate Management of Anaphylaxis

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.
