Are you prepared for an Anaphylaxis Emergency?

Are you prepared for an Anaphylaxiz Emergency

Would you recognise the symptoms of someone having anaphylaxis reaction and would you know confidently how to administer care to someone suffering from this anaphylaxis emergency?

Your quick thinking, actions and treatment could just save someone’s life!

Everyone should be prepared and educated in case of an emergency and understand the life-threatening effects it can have on an individual.

The HLTAID003 Provide First Aid will give you the skills to manage the situation.

What is anaphylaxis?

Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction and potentially life-threatening. It should always be treated as a medical emergency, requiring immediate treatment. Most cases of anaphylaxis occur after a person with a severe allergy is exposed to the allergen they are allergic to usually a food, insect or medication.

Usually occurring within 10 minutes to two hours from exposure to an allergen, anaphylaxis requires urgent medical attention. Often affecting more than one body system, it can cause many life-threatening symptoms without preventative measures in place.

The symptoms can range from swelling of lips, face, eyes, hives or welts to more severe of difficult/noisy breathing, swelling of tongue and tightness in the throat.

Anaphylaxis can be triggered by a range of allergens which vary from person to person. From food (milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, sesame, fish, shellfish, wheat and soy), venom from bites and stings (bee, wasp and ants) to medications.

Immediate actions for anaphylaxis

  1. Remove allergen (if still present).
  2. Call for assistance.
  3. Lay the patient flat. Do not allow them to stand or walk. If breathing is difficult, allow them to sit.
  4. Adrenaline (epinephrine) is the first-line treatment for anaphylaxis. If available, give them an intramuscular injection (IMI) adrenaline into outer mid-thigh without delay using an adrenaline auto injector if available OR adrenaline ampoule/syringe
  5. Give oxygen (if available)
  6. Call an ambulance to transport the patient to the hospital.
  7. If required at any time, commence CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation).

Learn how to be more prepared and properly treat an anaphylaxis emergency by taking an HLTAID003 Provide First Aid.

It’s easy to get trained
