Did you know that the number of hospital admissions for anaphylaxis in the UK has increased more than sevenfold in the last 10 years? 


Anaphylaxis is a severe and life-threatening allergic reaction, which requires immediate medical attention. Reactions usually occur when an individual's immune system responds inappropriately to the presence of an allergen that it wrongly perceives as a threat.  

 

This Level 2 Award in Basic Life Support and Management of Anaphylaxis (RQF) qualification has been designed for those who have a specific responsibility at work, at home or in voluntary and community activities, to provide basic life support and manage anaphylaxis when dealing with an emergency. Successful candidates will be able to recognise the signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis and will be equipped with the vital skills needed to administer safe, prompt and effective treatment. This includes the use of various auto-injector devices.  Note that certificates are valid for 1 year only.  

 

The topics covered on the course include: 

  • Chain of survival
  • Incident and casualty assessment
  • Managing an unresponsive casualty
  • CPR and defibrillation
