140,000 people die each year in the UK from incidents where first aid could possibly have saved their lives

Paediatric First Aid

For information regarding Ofsted and CSSIW recognised paediatric first aid courses scheduled in the North West or North Wales please call our office and we will be happy to provide you with all the information you require. Contact Happy Nest Nanny Agency on 01244 292528.

Here is just a few of the reasons why you should only employ a nanny with a valid paediatric first aid certificate.

A blocked airway is fatal in three to four minutes, but it can take more than eight minutes for an ambulance to arrive. So a simple procedure such as opening someone’s airway can save their life whilst waiting for emergency help to arrive.  

Thousands of fatal situations where first aid could have made the difference; this includes nearly 900 people who choke to death and 2,500 who asphyxiate from a blocked airway.

  A recent statistic, released by St John’s Ambulance, has revealed that 140,000 people die each year in the UK from incidents where first aid could possibly have saved their lives.

A survey found that in the event of a child choking 53% of parents would try to get the object out using their fingers, not knowing this could cause further damage.

  In 2009, ‘Mother and Baby Magazine’ fulfilled a Save A Life Survey; after this survey was conducted it showed that a massive 82% out of 2,000 questioned parents with young children would not know what to do if their child started choking, was burned or even stopped breathing, etc.  

  Nearly two-thirds of people (59%) within the UK wouldn’t feel confident enough to even try and save a life, and a further quarter of these people (24%) would do nothing and wait for an ambulance to arrive or even hope that a passerby would know the correct first aid required.

Nearly 9 in 10 teenagers have been confronted with some kind of medical emergency, 4 out of 5 of them say that they would feel safer if they had some basic first aid knowledge to apply to the situation and its circumstances.
