First Aid Tips For Parents Featured

Emergency and First Aid for Children
Contrary to what many trauma teams believe, the presence of family members does not impede the care of injured children in the emergency department, according to a study to be presented Saturday, April 28, at the Pediatric Academic Societies (PAS) annual meeting in Boston. Listen as we discuss this study and offer first aid tips for parents. What do you need in your first aid kit at home and in the car? What's the best way to care for scrapes and cuts at home? Is it better to keep it covered and moist, or let it dry out and form a scab? Do you need an antibiotic ointment? When do you need to head to the ER? These and other important questions will be answered on Health Children.
