Paediatric First Aid



Learn Paediatric First Aid with Action Plus

Unlike adults that are more knowledgeable and experienced, children often can’t take care of themselves after suffering some kind of accident or injury. In addition, the mental stress that children are put under when they suffer an injury can be devastating and it’s important to treat each minor infant patient with extra care to ensure a stable and safe treatment.

Action Plus Paediatric First Aid covers all of the common illnesses and conditions so that you can be prepared for when a child experiences some kind of injury in their life. The course will explain how to deal with infants who are experiencing the following:

Unresponsive or suffering breathing issues
Choking on something
Have cut themselves and are bleeding
Suffers a burn or scald
Has something lodged in their eye, ear, nose
Medical emergencies such as meningitis, asthma or allergic reactions
Suffered a head injury
Swallowed something that could be harmful
Showcasing symptoms of sickness or fever
An injury to their bones or muscles, including spinal injuries

Our paediatric first aid courses also include basic adult first aid skills, such as how to report accidents to emergency services, how to prepare a patient for easy transportation when the ambulance arrives and how to administer medication that could save lives. With paediatric first aid training, you no longer have to feel hopeless or confused when a child is suffering a medical emergency. Instead, you can quickly spring into action and help the child with your training.
