Public First Aid courses

Differences between Baby & Child First Aid and Paediatric First Aid

In a recent YouGov survey commissioned by our parent charity St Andrew’s First Aid, an alarming 59% of Scots revealed they would not know how to properly respond to their child choking. This can be solved with a Public First Aid course.

The intention of the YouGov survey was to discover how well the public are equipped to deal with emergencies requiring first aid in the home. It was unveiled that only 41% of the population were aware of the correct procedure to treat children under 12 years of age for choking.

Futhermore 23% did not have any knowledge at all of any of the correct procedures. While some 28% of the population would use double the recommended amount of back blows, potentially making the situation worse.
