Responding to Anaphylactic Reactions

This is for childminders and preschool teachers who are interested in learning how to administer an adrenaline auto-injector (AAI) in the event of an anaphylactic reaction. They can enrol in the Short Course on Responding to Anaphylactic Reactions.

In addition, you will learn how to use a defibrillator (AED) with confidence and safety, how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to a child or infant who has stopped breathing, and how to handle frequent problems like expired pads or low batteries on an AED.

Before handing a child or infant over to emergency services, you will also learn how to place them in the recovery position.
