Healthy expo Project

Hey guys,

recently we have been doing a healthy expo project here is all my information:

Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction to a food or substance. This allergic reaction is when the person with this condition comes in contact or eats the food/substance that makes their skin swell. When their skins swells, all the histamine in their bodies builds up causing them to swell up. When the persons skin swells up it causing problems, sometimes leading to death due to their air passages getting blocked by the swelled skin. Anaphylaxis is the most severe allergic reaction known to doctors and has to be treated right away because it is a medical emergency. An injection of adrenalin is the way to reduce the swelling and make the person better.

Some of The affects Anaphylaxis has on the body are:

  • Facial swelling, including swelling of the lips and eyelids
  • Swollen tongue
  • Swollen throat
  • Reddening of skin across the body
  • Hives (red welts) appearing across the skin
  • Abdominal discomfort or pain
  • Vomiting
  • Strained or noisy breathing
  • Inability to talk or hoarseness
  • Wheezing or coughing
  • Drop in blood pressure
  • Unconsciousness

Anaphylaxis can occur within minutes. The average of it occurring is about 20 minutes, symptoms are normally mild at first.

Thanks for reading, if u have any question s leave them in the comments below and answer my question if you can:

Do you have an allergic reaction to anything?

    Hey Frances,
    I thought that your presentation was really good and that you remembered all of your information, so you kept eye contact really well. I also thought that your hands on activity was pretty good.

    Great Presentation
