First Aid Management of Anaphylaxis

Anaphylaxis is a life-threatening allergic reaction that can affect various parts of the body. Symptoms can include breathing difficulties, a rapid drop in blood pressure, or both. Anaphylaxis symptoms appear suddenly and survival is dependent on fast action. The Real First Aid Management of Anaphylaxis course helps graduates understand the indications of anaphylaxis along with treatment measures to deal with this life-threatening situation. First Aid Management of Anaphylaxis is a 3 hour nationally accredited course.

Real First Aid immersive courses are designed for deeper learning outcomes that arm graduates with the know-how to respond quickly and efficiently in any emergency. Every second is crucial in life or death situations, so Real First Aid instructors are dedicated to empowering students with the right mental approach alongside specialised medical emergency procedures. Simulation training is used to replicate real life emergencies in a ‘learning by doing’ environment, allowing students the opportunity to engage in realistic emergency responses. Simulation training encourages team work, critical thinking and appropriate response, along with much greater knowledge retention.

First Aid Management of Anaphylaxis attainments

This specialised course is solely dedicated to Anaphylaxis diagnosis and treatment procedures. Students develop a thorough understanding of allergic reaction symptoms including breathing difficulties, swelling of the throat, heart rate fluctuations, abdominal pain and more. Anaphylaxis treatments are commonly performed by emergency services personnel, and the knowledge provides a valuable resource for accredited first aid practitioners. First Aid Management of Anaphylaxis is a stand-alone course that can also be combined with other essential Real First Aid qualifications. Graduates of the first aid courses are certified for twelve months.

Apart from developing an understanding of anaphylaxis symptoms and indicators, students also learn how to administer a measured dose of adrenaline (known in some countries as epinephrine) with an Epipen. This device is a first aid must-have for treatment of severe allergic reactions. Real First Aid courses instructors are experienced emergency services personnel who are eminently qualified to oversee practice scenarios that promote leadership during emergencies. Students also learn how to minimise the risks associated with anaphylaxis, along with ongoing treatment of patients during the recovery phase.

Real First Aid solutions

In reaching out tothe broader public and private industry, Real First Aid courses can be held on location for industry-specific training. Our course facilitators create unique emergency scenarios by creating simulations that are tailored to individual needs. In the few years since its foundation in 2014, Real First Aid has taken the industry standard first aid courses and CPR learning to new levels of immersive understanding, producing capable people who are willing and able to step up when emergencies arise.

Knowledge is tested when individuals or organisations are confronted with the reality of an emergency. Time is of the essence, and appropriate responses are reliant on a calm approach under pressure. Although first aid theory is essential, it won’t save lives unless applied properly. Real First Aid emergency simulations provide a genuine working knowledge of first aid approaches, and are a major reason for successful emergency response outcomes. Real First Aid was established in response to a glaring lack of first aid and CPR knowledge retention by students, and the simulations present a first-hand opportunity to test knowledge and skills in real-time emergency situations.
