FIRST AID for Infants, Young Children & Teenagers

"If The Worst Happens" Presented by Gavin Campbell  

Eight programmes - each nine minutes - on:

Resuscitation - Drowning - Burns and Scalding - Choking - Poisoning - Bleeding - Febrile Convulsions - Fractures

True-life emergencies are realistically re-enacted. The child, teenager and adult originally involved describe the accident. There follows a clear, calm, step-by-step demonstration of correct procedures. Annually, accidents send three million children to hospital.

 

The best first aid video I have seen for many years. It will be used for Parent Education in the children’s out patient area.

Dr Alex Habel,  Consultant Paediatrician, West Middlesex University Hospital

 

An invaluable part of the training programme for Learning Support Assistants. Many trainee classroom assistants have undertaken a First Aid Certificate Course as a result of the video’s impact. It should be available to all those involved in childcare situations.

Liz Tyzack-Jones,  Lecturer at Kingston University and Hounslow Further Education

MENINGITIS: ‘Cries of Alarm’

Follows the progress of three children just diagnosed. And their battle for survival against this country’s biggest, swiftest killing disease. It emphasizes the vital importance of taking no chances and immediate action. And demonstrates the critical standards of care needed - but not always administered - once meningitis is diagnosed. Also highlighted the life-saving difference special mobile paediatric rapid response units (as opposed to paramedic ambulance care) can make with their expertise and equipment, for critically ill children (not just meningitis but other illness and accident trauma) can play key role in encouraging charities, parent groups, & businesses set up a local 24 hour mobile paediatric service
