Anywhere First Aid would like to share this important information about Anaphylaxis.

More people in Australia are dying from anaphylaxis than in any other developed country, warn immunologists, with medication and bee stings the biggest culprits. Sadly for the period between 1997 and 2013, there were 324 deaths related to anaphylaxis in Australia.


Anaphylaxis is a severe type of allergic reaction that can affect any age group . It is a potentially life-threatening and requires urgent treatment.


Over the past five years, hospital admissions for anaphylaxis have increased by 46%. That is why Anywhere First Aid ensures that during their first aid training courses the triggers, signs and symptoms and training epipens are used to ensure that everyone knows what to look for and what to do if faced with an anaphylactic emergency situation.
