EFR (Emergency First Response) Care for Children £85
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 will learn about the types of medical emergencies
that children face, and how they differ from adult conditions. The course
also includes 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.
Emergency First Response Care for Children course trains you
to follow the same priorities of care used by medical professionals.
You will 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 the rescuer 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 the rescuer's confidence to render 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.
