Summary

Each year, an average of 140,000 children are treated in the Emergency Department after an accident at home. Most children are between the ages of zero and four. Half of the injuries are caused by a fall, and this usually involves injuries to the head, neck or back. Children can also be injured at school and in traffic.

The First Aid for Babies and Children training gives you the tools to adequately apply first aid to babies and children.
