Paediatric First Aid – How to help a Child in an Emergency

If you are a parent, guardian or work with children, then you will know that Children and babies can be very inquisitive and are likely to climb, reach out and jump to explore their surroundings. Although, this can put them in a dangerous situation and accidents can happen sometimes before you know it!

Would you know how to help a child in an emergency? Train in Paediatric First Aid and be prepared for any accident.

A lot of accidents occur in the living room and dining room, however, more serious accidents happen in the kitchen or stairs – where children and babies are more at risk or injury. ‘Every year more than 67,000 children experience an accident in the kitchen and 43,000 of these are aged under four,’ says Sheila Merrill, public health adviser at the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

The most common childhood accidents or injuries include:

  1. Falls
  2. Scalds and Burns
  3. Glass Related Accidents
  4. Poisoning
  5. Suffocating
  6. Strangulation
  7. Drowning
