Severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) can kill without immediate first aid. The UK is one of the top countries in the world for incidence of allergies.
Allergies affect approximately one in three of the UK population and each year numbers grow by 5% with as many as half of those affected being children.
Anaphylaxis is the most severe form of allergic reaction. Common causes are insect stings, foods and some medication. It is life threatening and requires immediate first aid (an auto-injector) and emergency medical assistance.
Those who provide childcare and workplace first aiders who have to deal with those prone to anaphylaxis should also attend.
