FAQ - THE PAEDIATRIC FIRST AID TRAINING COURSE

Frequently Asked Questions

Please see below the common questions about our Paediatric First Aid course. Just click to expand the answer.

What is paediatric first aid? Paediatric first aid is giving care to a child/infant (anyone under the age of 16) who has been injured, or who has become ill prior to the arrival of qualified medical assistance. It is especially beneficial to those who work in full-time childcare and in schools. Under The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and Ofsted requirements, there must be at least one person who holds a current Paediatric First Aid certificate on the premises at all times when children are present, including school trips.

The '3 Ps' summarises the aims of the first aider:
  1. Preserve life.
  2. Prevent the situation from worsening.
  3. Promote recovery.
Who needs paediatric first aid training? Anyone who works with children needs Paediatric First Aid training. This includes:
  • School, pre-school and nursery staff
  • Paediatric nurses
  • Childminders
  • After-school workers
  • Sports club staff
  • Play and activity centre staff
  • Babysitters
  • Parents, carers and grandparents
The Department of Education guidance requires all newly qualified child carers to have Paediatric First Aid training.
What is the difference between Paediatric first aid and first aid? The difference between Paediatric First Aid and first aid is that Paediatric First Aid focuses on children and infants and first aid focuses on adult casualties. The reason why there are two different courses is that in some key areas, the advice for children is different from that of adults. It's important those who supervise children on a regular basis know these differences and the right response. Here are some examples of first aid advice that differs for adults, children and infants:
  1. CPR - for adults, you should use two hands. For children, you should use one hand, and for infants, you must only use two fingers.
  2. Defibrillation - Paediatric AED pads on small children should be placed differently from AED pads on adults and older children.
  3. Choking - the procedure for choking adults is very different to babies and young children. This is one of the key topics you need to know.

What is a paediatric primary survey?

A paediatric primary survey is a fast way to find out how to treat any life-threatening conditions a child or baby may have in order of priority by using the anagram DRABC.

D - Danger: Make sure the area, you, the child/infant and any bystanders are safe.

R - Response: Check if the child/infant is conscious. Call their name and if it's a child, gently shake or tap their shoulders. If it's an infant or baby, gently tap the bottom of their foot to see if there is a response. If there is no response, assume they are in an unresponsive state.

A - Airway: Check and treat any life-threatening airway problems. Open the airway by placing your hand on their forehead and gently tilt their head back, propping the chin up slightly with your other hand to ensure the airway is open and clear. If the child or infant is unresponsive, move on to breathing very quickly. If they are responsive but their airway is blocked, you need to clear the airway.

B - Breathing: Check to see if the child/infant is breathing normally. Place your ear above their mouth, looking down their body and listen for the sound of breathing, if you can feel their breath on your cheek and see if their chest moves. Do this for 10 seconds. If unresponsive, call emergency help and start child/baby CPR. If they are breathing, move onto circulation.

C - Circulation: Look and check for any signs of severe bleeding. If they are, control and treat the bleeding by applying direct pressure to the wound and call 999/112 for emergency help. If they are unresponsive and breathing but no bleeding, put them in the recovery position and call 999/112 for emergency help.

Is paediatric first aid training a legal requirement?

Paediatric First Aid training is a legal requirement for those working with children. The Department for Education / Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework requires all newly qualified child carers with a level two or three qualification to have Paediatric First Aid training. They have three months to complete their training after starting work with a new employer.

For the EYFS and Ofsted requirements, you must have at least one 12-hour full Paediatric First Aid qualified member of staff available at all times including cover for sickness, holidays and trips. Our blended Paediatric First Aid course will give learners a full Paediatric First Aid certification to meet these requirements and be used to provide evidence for compliance.
