Anaphylaxis Webinar Recording
22nd June 2022
Anaphylaxis is a life-threatening emergency that requires prompt recognition of signs and symptoms, early administration of adrenaline (epinephrine) in adequate dosage, and aggressive volume replacement.
In 2021, The Canberra Hospital had a increase in the incidence of anaphylaxis in the Operating Room. A gap of knowledge was identified within the Perioperative Unit. Janeya's presentation is on the Australian & New Zealand Anaesthetic Allergy Group (ANZAAG) guidelines for the diagnosis and management of anaphylaxis. It gives everyone a streamlined response to anaphylaxis - when everyone is on the same page, it leads to a faster recognition of the situation and less delays to treatment leading to better patient outcomes.
Janeya has been a Registered Nurse for eight years working in Anaesthetics, PACU, Infection Control & Patient Safety. Janeya has a passion for learning and sharing that knowledge with her peers.
