Allergic Reactions and Anaphylaxis (ALS)

Allergic reactions, including their more severe form, anaphylaxis, represent an exaggerated or hypersensitive response following exposure to any of a number of triggers or allergens, like food, medications, or pollen. Allergic and anaphylactic reactions are typically but not always mediated by the immune system and are most notable for the fact that many other people would not experience any such reaction when exposed to the same triggers. Anaphylaxis represents the more severe and potentially life-threatening form of an allergic reaction. Your ability to recognize and treat allergic reactions can mean the difference between life and death for some patients. In this course, we'll discuss how the immune system may trigger allergic reactions, anaphylaxis recognition and treatment, as well as epinephrine administration.
