Between 1% ad 15% of the population of the United States are considered "at risk" for having severe, life threatening allergic reactions to allergens. The incidences of these severe reactions requiring hospital treatment appear to be increasing, with the most severe resulting in approximately 1,500 deaths per year in the U.S. As the number of children with allergies also increases, schools need to be prepared to recognize and address even the most severe allergic reactions. Written by Michael Livovich, by the completion of this tutorial, participants will understand these objectives: Anaphylaxis and Anaphylactic Shock; The Causes of Anaphylaxis and Anaphylactic Shock; The Symptoms of Anaphylaxis and Anaphylactic Shock; Treatment for Anaphylaxis and Anaphylactic Shock; and Management of Anaphylaxis in Schools.
