Paediatric First Aid - Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

Here at The Mandatory Training Group, we receive many enquiries about Paediatric First Aids. We have listed some of these frequently asked questions.

Click on the text below to see the answers to the Frequently Asked Questions about Paediatric First Aid.

Paediatric First Aid training concentrates solely on the child and infant age groups. This is useful to full-time childcare workers such as childminders, nannies and nursery staff. Standard paediatric courses will cover how to manage an ill or injured child/infant in the event of an emergency.

Paediatric First aid training under EYFS (0-5 years) is covered in Appendix 1 of the Practice Guidance for the Early Years Foundation Stage guide. For ages above EYFS, the Guide to registration on the Childcare Register Annex A covers the first aid requirements.

For children, if two rescuers are available to do CPR, the compression to breaths ratio is 15:2; if only one rescuer is available, the rate is 30:2 for all age groups. For tiny children, you can use one-handed chest compressions.

For the EYFS and Ofsted requirements, you should have at least one 12 hours full paediatric first aid qualified member of staff available at all times, including cover for sickness, holidays and trips. One-day Emergency Paediatric First Aid can support the 12-hour paediatric first aid trained staff.

First aid is the initial treatment given to a victim. Some injuries do not require professional assistance. They can be treated with simple methods such as applying an ice pack etc. First aiders can help the affected person feel better and relieve pain by performing simple procedures.

Being confident to give prompt and appropriate first aid following a medical emergency is an essential skill and particularly vital for anyone with responsibility for other people's children. This includes cover for sickness and annual leave and to accompany children on trips or excursions.

First aid helps ensure that the right methods of administering medical assistance are provided. Knowing how to help a person is just as crucial in emergencies. It only takes six minutes for the human brain to expire due to lack of oxygen.

Here's our take on the skills required to become a tremendous first aider:

  • Communication skills / interpersonal ability
  • Confidence
  • Ability to work under pressure
  • Attention to details
  • Teamwork and leadership
  • One set of goals of first aid is called the "Three P's":

  • Preserve life – stop the person from dying.
  • Prevent further injury – stop the person from being injured even more.
  • Promote recovery – try to help the person heal their injuries.
  • Paediatric First Aid training concentrates solely on the child and infant age groups. This is useful to full-time childcare workers such as childminders, nannies and nursery staff. Standard paediatric courses will cover how to manage an ill or injured child/infant in the event of an emergency.

    These are what you should have as a minimum in your first aid kit:

  • 20 Plasters
  • 2 Sterile eye pads
  • 4 Triangular bandages
  • 6 Safety pins
  • 6 Medium and 2 large dressings
  • 6 Individually wrapped wipes
  • 1 Disposable gloves
  • 1 General guidance leaflet.
  • The paediatric age range is defined as ages 0-18 (birth to 18 years of age). Note, this definition does not imply that paediatricians may not provide services to individuals who are beyond 18 years of age (e.g., young adults).
