Understand Food Allergies and Anaphylaxis

Life Education recently partnered with Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia (A&AA) to produce this short video to educate children and young people on food allergy and anaphylaxis.

The star of the 2 minute video is Kate Neville, who has peanut, tree nut and pea allergy. Kate and her family were founding members of Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia in 1993 and we are very grateful that she agreed to present for this video. She outlines:

  • What is an allergic reaction

  • Some things that can cause an allergic reaction

  • Medications for allergic reactions (including anaphylaxis)

  • How to be a good friend to someone with a food allergy

 

Important update to the Understand Food Allergies and Anaphylaxis video above: EpiPen® must be held in place for 3 seconds when it is used (this video shows it as 10 seconds – this is outdated information).

IN AN EMERGENCY

If you are having an allergic reaction follow advice on your ASCIA Action Plan.

If in doubt, give the Anapen® or EpiPen®.

Do not call us for emergency advice.

If you do not have an ASCIA Action Plan and/or an Anapen® or EpiPen® call triple zero (000) for an ambulance.
