It is our role as parents to protect our child and act responsibly. However, accidents happen quickly in the age group 0-4. Common pediatric accidents generally include choking, drowning, and falling.
As a matter of fact, choking is truly a significant cause of death due to unintentional injuries in young children, and some studies have clearly stated that around 60-80% of deaths due to choking are related to food. As a result, choking is one of the important modes of death in young children who are tragically dying from unintentional injuries. Understandably, learning Infant CPR is critical. In addition, it is easy and can save a life. Keeping your infant safe at home, at the park, in your car, and in and around the water is a priority. Yet pediatric accidents happen unfortunately frequently and an emergency may occur too soon. As a parent or caregiver, you need to be fully prepared, ready and know what to do.
