What is anaphylaxis?
Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction that is rapid in onset and may cause death.
For many children, the symptoms of allergy are mild. However, occasionally, the symptoms are severe, and they may even be life-threatening. The common causes of severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) include foods such as peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, shellfish, fish, sesame seeds and kiwi fruit, although many other foods have been known to trigger anaphylaxis. Peanut allergy is particularly common – with one in 70 children nationwide thought to be affected.
Non-food causes of anaphylaxis include wasp or bee stings, natural latex (rubber) and certain drugs such as penicillin.
The good news is that even the most severe form of allergy is manageable. The vast majority of the children affected are happily accommodated in mainstream schools thanks to excellent communication between parents, school staff, doctors and education authorities. With sound precautionary measures and support from the staff, school life may continue as usual for all concerned.
What are the signs and symptoms of anaphylactic shock?
- suddenly feeling too warm
- skin reactions such as itchy skin, hives, flushed skin, or pale skin
- shortness of breath
- throat, lips or tongue swelling
- feeling like you have a lump in your throat or difficulty swallowing
- nausea, vomiting, or diarrhoea
- abdominal pain
- a weak and rapid pulse
- lightheadedness, dizziness and drop in blood pressure
- runny nose and sneezing.
What are the most common causes of anaphylaxis?
- Foods such as peanuts, nuts, fish and shellfish
- Certain medications, including antibiotics, aspirin and other over-the-counter pain relievers, and the intravenous (IV) contrast used in some imaging tests
- Stings from bees, yellow jackets, wasps, hornets and fire ants
What is EpiPen training?
Can an EpiPen stop an asthma attack?
In the event of an emergency (where the child may be experiencing an asthma attack or severe allergic reaction), use EpiPen ® first (or other adrenaline/epinephrine injections such as Jext or Emerade). After using the epinephrine injection, follow medical instructions for controlling asthma.
Why is anaphylaxis training essential?
Every school, nursery or early years setting is likely to have at least one pupil who is severely allergic to a type of food, and many schools will have more. It is essential that all teachers, nursery staff and others who work with children have appropriate training to enable them to recognise and manage severe allergic reactions in schools and community settings.
For many children, the symptoms of allergy are mild. However, occasionally, the symptoms are severe and may even be life-threatening. The common causes of severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) include foods such as peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, shellfish, fish, sesame seeds and kiwi fruit. Non-food causes of anaphylaxis include wasp or bee stings, natural latex (rubber) and drugs such as penicillin.
Our online anaphylaxis training course for schools was designed to ensure that key members of staff in schools are fully aware of the signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis, how to provide emergency treatment and the implications for management of severely allergic children from Key Stages 1 to 5 in an education setting.
