Immunological Emergencies (Allergic Reactions and Anaphylaxis)


Anaphylactic shock is an extreme allergic reaction. Allergic reactions occur because the body’s immune system reacts inappropriately in response to the presence of a substance that it wrongly perceives as a threat. In order to develop an allergic response the body has to be exposed to something in order to trigger the immune response – this can be touched, inhaled, swallowed or injected – during a routine vaccination or by an insect sting.
