Got 6 minutes? Watching This Video Could Save a Life
By NEA HIN staff
A severe allergic reaction, or what’s called anaphylaxis, can be really serious and even life-threatening.
It can happen at anytime and anywhere – in the classroom, cafeteria, playground, on the bus or during a field trip. So it's critical that ALL school employees, including teachers and education support professionals, know about allergic reactions, how to identify them, how to respond in an emergency, and how they can help prevent them in the first place.
That's why NEA HIN and Sanofi US teamed up to create a video for educators and education support professionals on managing severe allergies in school. Watch the video below, and then head over to our allergy page for more information and resources on severe allergies and anaphylaxis.
Knowing how to spot, manage and respond to a severe allergy can truly save a life!
