Course Overview

Paediatric first aid refers to the emergency care provided to infants and children who become ill or injured. It focuses on the unique anatomy, physiology, and development needs of children that require specialized assessment and treatment approaches.

Pediatric first aid training is a course that teaches participants how to provide emergency care to infants and children during the critical first minutes until professional help arrives. The training is typically recommended for individuals who work with children, including childcare providers, teachers, coaches, and parents. If you care for young children and babies as part of your work, then you have a responsibility to learn the basics of pediatric first aid so that you are ready for any eventuality.

Pediatric first aid training is specifically designed to teach individuals how to respond to medical emergencies involving infants and children up to the age of 8 years old.

Paediatric first aid training is important because infants and children have unique physiological responses to illness and injury that require specialized care approaches beyond typical adult first aid. Proper training prepares any parents, teachers, caregivers or others who work closely with children to effectively assess and care for children in distress until professional help is available. This can be critical in saving lives and minimizing complications.
