It often occurs unexpectedly – with symptoms such as a drop in blood pressure, respiratory collapse and loss of consciousness. It is vital that those affected, their relatives, friends, the school or working environment are familiar with the most important rules of how to behave and emergency measures. Both theory and practice are covered in the course of the training.
