New parents with an infant that is not feeling well often turn to Google searches attempting to guess what may be causing their child to be feeling ill. This online course, First Aid for New Parents eliminates the guesswork when attempting to decipher an infant’s cries, coughs, breathing and appearance when learning why an infant is acting ill. As infants grow and become more mobile, the potential for an accidental injury rises and parents and infant caregivers need to prepare themselves to treat life threatening injuries and illnesses while they wait on EMS to arrive.
This course is different from other first aid courses. This course is specific to infants and the unique illnesses and injuries parents, grandparents and infant caregivers encounter. Unlike many first aid courses, this course does not rely on long, boring lectures and PowerPoint presentations.
Unlike most first aid books, it does not use pages and chapters of text and pictures to explain first aid concepts. The book blends lively, to-the-point presentations with easy-to-understand (and remember) graphics with video demonstrations.
