The Emergency First Response Care for Children course is an innovative CPR- AED and First Aid training course that teaches you how to provide emergency care for injured or ill children (ages one to eight) and infants less than one year old. You learn about the types of medical emergencies that children face- and how they differ from adult conditions- the importance of attending to basic emergency situations with children- the emotional aspects of caring for children- secondary care for children- and preventing common injuries and illnesses in children. You will learn to follow the same priorities of care used by medical professionals and master the priorities and the procedures of patient care for infants and children in a non-stressful learning environment- which reduces the performance anxieties that interfere with learning and enhances confidence when rendering aid in a real medical emergency. The course includes both primary care (CPR) and secondary care (first aid) skills. The primary care portion of the course prepares you to render aid to an infant or child with a life-threatening emergency such as choking or cardiac arrest. Secondary care focuses on developing secondary patient care skills and building your confidence to administer first aid to an infant or child in need when emergency medical services are either delayed or unavailable. The Care for Children course content is based on guidelines from the Pediatric Working Group of ILCOR. Primary Care Course Content: Scene Assessment- Barrier Use- Primary Assessment- Obstructed Airway Management (child and infant) Rescue Breathing (child and infant)- Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (child and infant)- Automated External Defibrillator (AED) use- Serious Bleeding- Shock Management- Spinal Injury Management.
