Child First Aid

A Quick Guide To Administering First Aid On a Child

First Steps

Checking an injured/ill infant or child should be the first thing you do (if they appear to be unconscious).


1. Ask if they are OK.

2. If there is no response, call 9-1-1.

3. Open the airway, lift head back slightly and lift chin.

4. Check for breathing, but for no more than 10 sec.

5. Give two rescue breaths (see diagram).


If NO breathing, immediately begin CPR.
