Note: The course is designed for adults only. Unfortunately, this course is kid’s unfriendly. Due to seriousness of topics taught, we are unable to let your child(ren) join the course. Please come alone. Add-on: After completion of a course held on March 24, a couple whose baby was in daycare throughout the day, mentioned that it would have been impossible for the little one to stay inside the room an entire day.
Course Description: The Emergency First Response Care for Children course is an innovative CPR, AED and First Aid training course that teaches participants how to provide emergency care for injured or ill children (ages one to eight) and infants less than one year old. Participants learn about the types of medical emergencies that children face, and how they differ from adult conditions. The curriculum also includes the importance of attending to basic emergency situations with children, the emotional aspects of caring for children, secondary care for children, and preventing common injuries and illnesses in children.
Emergency First Response Care for Children course trains the lay rescuer to follow the same priorities of care used by medical professionals. The student masters the priorities and the procedures of patient care for infants and children in a non-stressful learning environment, which reduces the performance anxieties that interfere with learning and enhances confidence when rendering aid in a real medical emergency.
The course includes both primary care (CPR) and secondary care (first aid) skills. The primary care portion of the course prepares the rescuer to render aid to an infant or child with a life-threatening emergency such as choking or cardiac arrest. Secondary care focuses on developing secondary patient care skills and building the rescuer’s confidence to render first aid to an infant or child in need when emergency medical services are either delayed or unavailable. The Care for Children course content is based on guidelines from the Pediatric Working Group of ILCOR.
Care for Children Primary Care Course Content: Scene Safety Assessment Universal Precautions-Communicable Disease Protection & Barrier Use Primary Assessment Obstructed Airway Management (child and infant) Rescue Breathing (child and infant) Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (child and infant) Automated External Defibrillator (AED) use Serious Bleeding Shock Management Spinal Injury Management.
Care for Children Secondary Care Course Content: Injury Assessment, Bandaging and Illness Assessment.

Ultimate Tak Ball
Health and Sports Day (taiku-no-hi) is coming up in Japan on Monday, October 8. Besides this being a blessing for those who love national holidays in Japan, please cheer for the little and bigger ones during Field Sports Day (undo-kai) this Saturday, held at kindergartens and schools throughout the nation. I (Patric) can’t attend myself due to 25 adventure seekers coming up into the woods to be processed by http://abseiling.me over the long weekend, so please cheer for Felix running his bud off, hopefully earning the gold medal. If you’re interested in this old tradition, watch below video clip to hear the original taiku-no-hi theme song that was recorded around the campfire on this awesome adventure campground in Gunma, performed by 3 young ladies.
