Course Description

The course is designed for anyone required to perform basic life support skills or to treat anaphylaxis in an emergency situation prior to the arrival of emergency services.

Anaphylaxis is a life threatening allergic reaction. This three hour face to face training session will help educate and build confidence in recognising and managing this acute condition, in addition to the essential life-saving skills taught in our BLS course.

Open discussions are encouraged on both personal experience and scenarios that the delegates may encounter in their working environment, combined with simulation and practical elements to ensure our candidates leave the session confident in their knowledge and abilities.
