As a parent, we are always worried about our children safe. We want our children to be safe all the time. Children are prone to many accidents that can be fatal, for example, children are more prone to choking than adults, and they are prone to injuries such as bleedings while in the playground, chocking and nose bleeding.
Due to this fact, parents and caregivers should have basic knowledge of how to perform first aid to children for various emergencies.
Here is a small guideline on how to perform first aid on children.
It is advisable to seek further medical attention in the following situations.
Wounds and bleeding are common with children because they are exposed to may sharp objects without their guardian’s knowledge. These injuries can vary from small cuts to wounds that damage tendons and ligaments. This calls for a need to own a home first aid kit because all the items needed to deal with bleeding can be found in a first aid kit.
