This document provides clinical guidance for all staff involved in the care and management of a child presenting to an Emergency Department ED in Queensland with symptoms suggestive of an acute allergic reaction or anaphylaxis. Allergens can enter the body via a number of different portals, including inhalation, ingestion, contact with skin and injection parenteral medication or insect stings and bites. Allergic diseases have approximately doubled in western countries over the last 25 years. The most common allergic conditions in children are food allergies, eczema, asthma and hayfever allergic rhinitis. Most allergic reactions do not cause major problems, even though for many people they may be a source of extreme irritation and discomfort.

Food Allergy Management at School in the Era of Immunotherapy
These guidelines for the acute management of severe allergic reactions anaphylaxis are intended for medical practitioners, nurses and other health professionals who provide first responder emergency care. The appendix includes additional information for health professionals working in emergency departments, ambulance services, and rural or regional areas, who provide emergency care. Mild or moderate reactions may not always occur before anaphylaxis :. Anaphylaxis — Indicated by any one of the following signs:. The most common triggers of anaphylaxis are foods, insect stings and drugs medications. Less common triggers include latex and ticks. Anaphylaxis usually occurs within one to two hours of ingestion in food allergy.
Schools will determine how many staff need to be trained by considering the health needs of their student population. All Queensland state schools, including departmental outdoor and environmental education centres, are required to maintain a minimum of one adrenaline auto-injector for the purpose of providing emergency medication to students and staff for the treatment of anaphylaxis. Pharmacists can sell adrenaline in a pre-loaded auto-injector to a principal or a person nominated by the principal for the purpose of stocking or maintaining a first aid kit. A pharmacist must be reasonably satisfied that the purchaser is the principal or delegate of the school. For more information about the purchase of adrenaline for a school first-aid kit, please see Queensland Health's medicines—regulatory advice. State schools must not implement bans on food, or claim that the school or any part of the school is allergen e. Food bans do not prevent exposure to an allergen.

Food allergy is increasing in prevalence, and management focuses on strict avoidance of known allergens and appropriately treating reactions. Any reaction has the potential to result in anaphylaxis, which can be fatal. Children spend a significant amount of time in the childcare or school setting, and interactions between families, school personnel, and clinicians are important to ensure the health and safety of children with allergies and asthma. This review examines current food allergy guidelines and legislation, an assessment of allergen-free schools, the importance of written anaphylaxis action plans, training and education of school personnel, emerging treatment options, and the social implications of having food allergies. As the clinical use and research into food allergen immunotherapy continues to expand, an additional level of education and management is required of school personnel and caregivers.
