Emergency Child Aid. Child Health and Safety Series (Module VI).
Iscoe, Louise; And Others
This manual for child care personnel in day care homes and centers provides a step by step review of what to do in common emergency situations. It is emphasized that the manual is not a substitute for the complete first aid course which every careperson should have. Initial sections of the manual focus on preparing for emergency conditions, planning and practicing (including role-playing), and obtaining reliable assistance. Section II outlines basic life support procedures for unconscious, non-breathing, and choking children. Sections III, IV, and V deal with spinal cord injuries, concussions and broken bones, as well as transportation to a hospital. Section VI discusses burn treatment procedures. Section VII covers responses to poisoning. Section VIII indicates procedures for convulsions. (A slide/sound presentation, one 16 mm film, and pamphlets were produced in conjunction with this manual.) (RH)
