Anaphylaxis and Adrenaline Auto-injector Awareness

Anaphylaxis and Adrenaline Auto-injector Awareness


Anaphylaxis (or anaphylactic shock) is a life-threatening, serious allergic reaction to substances such as food groups insect stings. Under the The Human Medicines (Amendment) Regulations 2017, certain settings are now permitted to hold ‘spare’ adrenaline auto-injectors (AAIs) for emergency use, in addition to those prescribed to individuals suffering from serious allergies.

This training is to enable first responders to recognise and treat anaphylaxis safely and effectively. It includes the administration of adrenaline auto-injectors (such as EpiPen of Jext) and the importance of recognising and differentiating between allergic reactions and potentially life-threatening anaphylactic reactions immediately.
