PRESS BRIEFING – SAVE OR WAIT?

March 15 this year. there was a press briefing entitled Save or wait? As we have already mentioned many times, so far there is no legal regulation clearly defining how an employee of a school or kindergarten should behave in the event of an anaphylactic shock or an asthma attack in a child located in an educational institution. The topic is complex and debatable. Unfortunately, one thing is for sure. In such situations, time plays a significant role, because the child’s life depends on the speed of drug administration (adrenaline – anaphylactic shock, salbutamol – asthma). At the request of the Ministry of Health, our experts developed recommendations showing the behavior patterns of an adult in the immediate vicinity of a sick child and the requirements for equipping facilities with life-saving drugs.
