Mom's Guide to Medical Emergenciesby CanadianPharmacyKing - June 2nd, 2014
When an accident or injury occurs, your primary concern is your child's health and safety. Most cases of childhood illness are not serious, and can be handled with treatment at home or with the advice and treatment of your pediatrician. Timely treatment can help alleviate symptoms and reduce the chances of an illness becoming more serious over time.
Emergencies most often occur when there is a sudden injury from a fall, bicycle or car crash, an incident with a firearm, nonfatal drowning, electrical shock, burns or smoke inhalation. Some basic rules to follow in any injury emergency include:
. Remain calm.
. Call 9-1-1.
