What is anaphylaxis?

Anaphylaxis is a serious 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 good communication between parents, school staff, doctors and education authorities. With sound precautionary measures and support from the staff, school life may continue as normal for all concerned.

What are the signs and symptoms of anaphylactic shock?

Anaphylactic shock typically causes more than one of the following:

  • 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 diarrhea
  • abdominal pain
  • a weak and rapid pulse
  • lightheadedness, dizzness and drop in blood pressure
  • runny nose and sneezing.

What are the most common causes of anaphylaxis?

Anaphylaxis can be caused by any or a combination of the following:

  • 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
  • Latex.

What is Epipen training?

This medication is used in emergencies to treat very serious allergic reactions to insect stings/bites, foods, drugs, or other substances. Epinephrine acts quickly to improve breathing, stimulate the heart, raise a dropping blood pressure, reverse hives, and reduce swelling of the face, lips, and throat.

It is essential that all teachers, nursery staff, school nurses and those who work with children should complete paediatric anaphylaxis training, including the safe use of adrenaline injections such as Epipen Junior, Jext and Emerade.


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.

What is the Skills for Health’ UK ‘Core Skills Training Framework’ (CSTF)?

To minimise these challenges, LearnPac Systems works with various UK health and social care organisations to develop statutory and mandatory training courses in line with Skills for Health’s UK Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF). This includes mandatory training courses in the Skills for Health’s UK Core Skills Training Framework – CSTF Statutory Mandatory Training Subject Guide Version 1.3 , Skills for Health Clinical Care UK Core Skills Training Framework Subject Guide April 2015 and other awareness courses for health and social care workers.
