Paediatric First Aid

First aid covers a multitude of skill sets and responses to many medical situations.

 

Its primary aim, is to provide immediate medical care and treatment that will either resolve the situation (in less serious 'everyday' cases) or provide an essential short-term emergency stop-gap until professional medical assistance is in place.

 

The aim of this course is to equip you with the theoretical knowledge, skills and confidence you need to deal with paediatric first aid situations.

 

It covers all of the key topics including: emergency planning, assessing a situation, basic Life Support, CPR, shock, fractures, bleeding and a range of other minor illness and injuries.

 

Please be aware that having a theoretical knowledge on its own is not enough to be considered competent in paediatric first aid and practical demonstration in some areas is required to complete this training. Please contact us to arrange this.
