Anaphylaxis can happen at any time. Make sure you're prepared to save a life by taking this free course.

Recognizing & Responding to Anaphylaxis

Anaphylaxis (pronounced an-uh-fil-LAX-is) is a severe, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction. Symptoms can affect several areas of the body, including breathing and blood circulation.

Food allergy is the most common cause of anaphylaxis, although several other allergens—such as insect stings, medications or latex—can be potential triggers. Rarely, anaphylaxis is caused by exercise. Another uncommon form can occur when a person exercises soon after eating a problem food.
