Something everyone needs to know….

Last week on channel 4 they showed a programme called Birmingham Childrens Hospital.

On the programme they showed a little boy called Leyton,  who sadly died after choking on plastic cufflinks.  It was a hard hitting programme but it goes to show that everyone should know how to do basic first aid. Leyton’s dad  did a first aid as he did a first aid course 2 weeks prior to the tragedy. So this opens the question, how many people know basic first aid not just on a child but on anyone of any age?

It’s something everyone should know, it can be a matter of life or death in some situations. On this morning today they showed how to administer basic first aid to children. http://www.itv.com/thismorning/health/how-to-administer-basic-life-support-for-children also how to stop someone from choking http://www.itv.com/thismorning/health/how-to-stop-someone-from-choking-dr-ranj-how-to-save-a-life

These are both very important videos and everyone should watch them!

Hi! I am a 23 year old blogger from little old Norfolk. I am a wife to Jonny and a mummy to 2 daughters, Elsa and Cleo. I started this blog in September 2016 and have fell in love with blogging! My blog is my little space on the internet to write about what I want. I write about my little brother, who has Down Syndrome and I use my blog and social media to raise awareness. As well as product reviews, our adventures.

One thought on “Something everyone needs to know….

  1. If definitely recommend a course. I’ve done a couple of paediatric-specific courses and although (thankfully) I haven’t had to put them into practice, I did feel better for taking them.
