Many people suffer from severe allergic reactions to foodstuffs, medications, chemicals or the bite and sting of venomous creatures. In some cases, the reaction is extreme, with fatal results. Anaphylaxis management and treatment training steps are essential first aid skills that can be learnt in a couple of hours, making anaphylaxis training an extremely useful addition to other emergency first aid attainments. Real First Aid is dedicated to anaphylaxis management training in partnership with the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA) to achieve the best health outcomes for all Australians.
In less than half a day, Real First Aid course participants are brought up to speed with the latest anaphylaxis management procedures. First Aid Management of Anaphylaxis 22099VIC is a nationally accredited qualification that provides the skill-set to minimise risk of allergic reaction and maximise first aid response in the event of an emergency. The strategies to effectively treat the symptoms of anaphylaxis, including EpiPen use, are taught using Real First Aid simulation training for maximising anaphylaxis treatment knowledge and skills retention.

Anaphylaxis management training in action
Real First Aid instructors are simulation specialists. Course participants are engaged as active emergency response personnel rather than idle classroom onlookers. The move to simulation training as used by the military and emergency services has resulted in Real First Aid quickly becoming a highly-regarded first aid trainer recognised by government and corporate bodies around the country. Anaphylaxis training steps are easily understood with dynamic and inclusive simulations. Signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis include:
• Swelling around the mouth, throat and eyes
• Localised swelling caused by a bite or sting
• A red or itchy rash on the back or chest
• Difficulty breathing comparable to an asthma attack
• Weakness, dizziness or complete collapse
• Nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea
First aid management of anaphylaxis saves lives, and Real First Aid graduates are equipped with the knowledge and skill to act decisively in the event of a real emergency.
Real First Aid anaphylaxis training
The range of accredited first aid courses is expanding in keeping with industry expectations, and Real First Aid is committed to providing a comprehensive first aid training experience. Anaphylaxis training steps include:
• Real First Aid course structure and options, including associated attainments such as the Management of Asthma Risks and Emergencies in the Workplace 22282VIC course.
• An overview of anaphylaxis and other allergies including asthma affecting children. ASCIA approved first aid training qualifications for school and childcare environments are highly regarded by all children’s services and education departments.
• Understanding anaphylaxis triggers, signs and symptoms. Once anaphylaxis is confirmed, appropriate treatment can commence.
• Familiarisation with anaphylaxis medications and devices including EpiPen and Anapen adrenaline autoinjectors used to treat acute allergic anaphylaxis.
• Anaphylaxis management training including Real First Aid simulations for increased immersion in the learning experience. Course participants engage in role play scenarios that resemble real emergency situations, resulting in high learning outcomes.
• Risk reduction strategies for the workplace, school or other setting. Allergies, including the familiar peanut allergy, are common, and ensuring health and safety is a responsibility we all need to share.
Real First Aid Attainments For Emergency Response
At Real First Aid, we take the mystery out of life saving procedures by providing an innovative and engaging learning experience. Anaphylaxis management training graduates have developed the knowledge and skill-set to respond in an emergency, co-ordinate other helpers, and communicate with emergency services personnel. Experienced instructors are on hand to ensure course participants become familiar with all aspects of anaphylaxis diagnosis and treatment.
Anaphylaxis causes and symptoms are many and varied, so it’s no surprise people are reluctant to intervene and attempt treatment when emergencies occur. Real First Aid anaphylaxis courses are the positive life-saving alternative, where first aid skills are learnt in an immersive environment designed to bring out the best in course participants. Real First Aid qualifications are attainments that save lives, prolong lives, and encourage healthy living for all Australians.
