For Parents: First Aid for Infants and Toddlers

First Aid for Infants and Toddlers (Course language is German)

Children have a strong urge to move and a pronounced curiosity regarding their surroundings. While exploring their environment, accidents can pose a great threat to the health of the child. Most childhood accidents result in scratches or bruises, but sometimes more serious situations leading to emergencies can occur. Therefore, it is important to know what to do in case of an emergency. This knowledge can provide immense reassurance and security.

This course discusses typical everyday situations that can lead to accidents/emergencies. From poisoning to burns to febrile seizures, etc., emergency situations that children may encounter are addressed.

Prevention comes first, meaning that hazardous situations should be identified and avoided before an accident happens. The environment of children must be made safe enough to allow them sufficient freedom to explore and actively conquer their surroundings.

In the event that something happens to the child, immediate measures are explained. The information received here should help bridge the critical time gap until medical help arrives. Finally, the procedure in an acutely life-threatening situation is explained. From emergency equipment in the household to emergency phone lists, to ventilation and performing CPR, all steps of life-saving measures until the arrival of the emergency physician are discussed.

Our first aid courses generally take place on the fourth weekend of the month:

  • Fridays from 4:30 PM to 7:30 PM
  • Saturdays from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM.

The course consists of 6 hours and costs 40 Euros for an individual and 70 Euros for a couple.
