Overview

Divided into three parts, this comprehensive, easy-to-follow guide begins with basic safety guidelines in Part One. As accidents are the leading cause of injury among young children, checklists for every area in and around your home are provided to prevent common mishaps. Suggestions such as maintaining a well-stocked home health kit, posting emergency telephone numbers, and appointing a designated surrogate are offered to help you act quickly and effectively in a crisis situation. Part Two presents illustrated, easy-to-follow, basic life-saving techniques and procedures. This practical section provides steps for initiating cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), guidelines for performing first aid for choking, techniques for immobilizing broken bones, and more. Part Three includes an A-to-Z listing of the most common emergency situations. Each entry begins with an explanation of the problem, followed by an emergency treatment procedure. For cases in which an emergency situation may not be obvious - such as bouts of excessive nausea or diarrhea - information on when to call the doctor is provided. Depending on the nature of the emergency, many entries also include prevention tips and general recommendations that include follow-up care. While no parent can avoid all emergency situations, it is reassuring that you can do much to safeguard your child, and to act swiftly and effectively should an emergency occur. Timely, clear, concise, and packed with life-saving information, A Parent's Guide to Medical Emergencies, is a must for any responsible person who cares for a child on a regular basis.

"Three medical professionals offer clear, easy-to-grasp ad- vice on how to administer first aid for common childhood emergencies...explains the steps for CPR and sheds light on symptoms that signify the need for profession medical care."

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
From the authors of Smart Medicine for a Healthier Child (LJ 9/15/94) comes a quick reference guide for both immediate and follow-up care for common pediatric emergencies, from allergic reactions to unconsciousness. Part 1 offers home safety checklists and basic preparedness suggestions as well as an interesting chapter on understanding childhood trauma and its after-effects. Part 2 reviews step-by-step basic life-saving techniques such as CPR and the Heimlich maneuver for infants and children (for which the authors strongly recommend formal training). Part 3 covers emergency treatment, conventional medical therapy, and natural or homeopathic remedies to use after the initial emergency has been treated. Emergencies are listed alphabetically for ease of use. The line drawings and instructions are clear and succinct, and critical information is printed in bold type. A list of American and Canadian poison control center telephone numbers is included under the section on poisoning. Recommended for consumer health collections.Anne C. Tomlin, Auburn Memorial Hosp.
