First aid for every situation: how to help your baby and toddler

Emergencies lurk everywhere. Even if we do everything possible to avoid it, something can go wrong even in the safest home. And then every second counts. But don't worry, nurse and BG-certified first aid instructor Tara Rödel prepares you for emergency situations in her online first aid course - with a lot of experience and empathy. Because your safety is the most important thing.

How do I deal with head injuries? What do I do if my baby swallows? And how does resuscitation of a baby differ from that of a child? Together with your partner, learn about the most important dangerous situations and sources and how you can best help your child. Feel more confident in your family interactions.

These and more emergency situations are covered in the course:

  • Fever
  • Swallowing and choking
  • Unconsciousness and fainting
  • Circulatory arrest and resuscitation measures
  • Nocturnal respiratory distress / pseudocroup
  • First aid for bloody injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Fall injuries to the head
  • Burns and scalds
  • Poisoning accidents

Contents of your online course
