The book is packed with photographs and illustrations that add context to real-life scenarios that make learning memorable. Key points and helpful hints help produce better first-aiders.

The topics covered in the book include:
• roles and responsibilities of the paediatric first-aider
• assessing an emergency situation safely
• unresponsive and breathing normally
• unresponsive and not breathing normally
• foreign body airway obstruction
• external bleeding
• shock
• bites and stings
• minor injuries
