Series Summary

The term “first aid” refers to the immediate care that is provided to an injured or sick person. It is used to stabilize a patient until further medical treatment and assessment can be provided at a hospital or care facility. For most of us, a first-aid kit is used primarily to treat minor medical emergencies, like small cuts or burns. But it is important to keep a first-aid kit stocked with supplies you use regularly as well as those items you might use until EMS can help. In addition to a first-aid kit, knowing what to do in emergency situations is a key part of treating injuries. Knowledge of how to roll an injured person to safety or help a person having an epileptic seizure may not be included in a first-aid kit, but might just save a life. In this free video series on first aid and child care, a registered nurse offers advice for taking care of cuts, scrapes, burns and children's illnesses. Find out how to treat burns, boils and aches, and get tips on boosting a child's immune system. Care for sick infants and toddlers, taking their temperature and applying cool compresses, and discover a few tricks to stay healthy while caring for sick family members.
