EpiPen Training

Anaphylaxis & Epipen Training

This course is suitable for any person who is involved in the administration of drugs and needs to be aware of the diagnosis and
treatment of anaphylactic reactions. We offer nation-wide coverage, delivered by experienced professional trainers.

Anaphylaxis is an extreme and severe allergic reaction. The whole body is affected, often within minutes of exposure to the allergen but
sometimes after hours.

Common causes include foods such as peanuts, tree nuts (e.g. almonds, walnuts, cashews, Brazils), sesame, fish, shellfish, dairy products
and eggs. Non-food causes include wasp or bee stings, natural latex (rubber), penicillin or any other drug or injection. In some people, exercise can trigger a severe reaction – either on its own or in combination with other factors such as food or drugs (e.g. aspirin).
