It is inevitable that children will at some point in their young lives have an accident or illness. This may range from the minor to the potentially lifethreatening, so as a parent, carer or teacher, you need to know how to effectively deal with each situation.
This publication is developed to be an easy to understand guide that could potentially save an infant, child or adult’s life.
Emergency First Aid for Carers and Teachers uses the latest clinical findings on resuscitation and other first aid topics, the best practices from the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) and the Australian and New Zealand Committee on Resuscitation (ANZCOR) guidelines where appropriate. This gives you the best information for helping injured or ill infants, children, colleagues, family members, friends or others in your community.
You will find this manual extremely simple to use within a short time, especially if undertaking a first aid course.
Features providing ease of use include but not limited to are:
- clear, easily-understood explanations
- medical terms avoided where possible
- comprehensive cross-referencing for rapid access to information
- Recognition sections to answer ‘What does it look like?’
- Management sections to answer ‘How do I deal with it?’
There are also Notes highlighted to be sure they come to your attention and Warnings to highlight significant information for the health and safety of the
casualty or the first aider.
The real benefit to you is simplicity, which has come from the many years of hands-on experience and skill of professional ambulance paramedics and other Health Care specialists associated with LivCor and APL Healthcare.
I sincerely hope you won’t need to use all the information this book provides, but should a situation arise, I’m sure you will find Emergency First Aid for Carers and Teachers an indispensable resource.
