QA Level 2 Award in Basic Life Support and Management of Anaphylaxis
Every minute without CPR and defibrillation following a cardiac arrest reduces a patient’s chance of survival by 10%. Sudden cardiac arrest is one of the UK’s biggest killers.
Anaphylaxis is a severe and life-threatening allergic reaction, which requires immediate medical attention. With the number of sufferers increasing each year, it is extremely important to know what to do when faced with this acute emergency condition.
