Anaphylaxis is a severe, life-threatening allergic reaction that is rapid in onset and may cause death if untreated. The most common anaphylactic reactions are to foods, insect stings, medications and latex. If you are allergic to a substance, your immune system overreacts to this allergen by releasing chemicals that cause allergy symptoms.

It is essential for those who look after others, including health and social care workers, first aiders and health and social care workers to be able to identify and treat anaphylaxis promptly and effectively.
