Emergency Aid for Children
They need different care. You should be aware.
You can't use a regular AED on a child!
Shock! It can be real.
Since children are small, shock can effect them worse. Watch closely after trauma for symptoms and treat them carefully. Symptoms include:
- irregular heartbeat
- cool, clammy skin
- rapid breathing
If someone has a seizure what do you do?
DO NOT hold or restrain the child or infant
DO NOT place anything between the teeth or in the mouth
DO call 911
DO remove all objects around the seizure victim
