Our Anaphylaxis in Aesthetic Practice CPD module is designed to empower healthcare professionals like you with the knowledge and skills to effectively manage anaphylactic reactions in the aesthetic setting. Anaphylaxis, although rare, can swiftly escalate into a life-threatening emergency. This module equips you with the critical expertise required to confidently and competently handle such situations.
Anaphylaxis, an acute and severe allergic reaction, demands rapid and precise intervention. Its triggers can encompass a wide range of substances, from medications used in aesthetic procedures to common foods and venomous insect stings. Recognising the early signs, such as generalised itch, urticaria, swelling, wheezing, and light-headedness, is pivotal for timely intervention. As healthcare professionals, you bear the responsibility of safeguarding your patients' well-being, and this module empowers you to do just that.
This module, composed of 10 MCQs, covers the standard approach to the management of anaphylaxis in the aesthetic setting. Once you successfully complete this module - and achieve the minimum pass rate of 60% - you will be presented with a 1-Hour CPD Certificate, which can be collected and used for your revalidation and appraisal. Also, we provide a reading list discussing all aspects of recognising and treating anaphylaxis, as well as the guidelines on treating anaphylaxis.
These assessment questions are designed to test your knowledge of the important aspects of anaphylaxis. On completion of this module, you will have an improved understanding of:
