This guide provides the layperson with clear and authoritative advice on accident prevention and immediate treatment. The author highlights the wide variety of accidents to which children are susceptible. There is a description of treatment of minor cuts and grazes and emphasises the immediate treatment of severe injuries – burns, scalds, fractures, poisoning etc, showing how children can be made comfortable and how further damage can be minimised before treatment is delivered at hospital or by the G.P. There are summaries of the vitally important points given at the end of each chapter and the treatment instructions have been highlighted in the text and the index by a special symbol for clear and rapid reference. Illustrated with black and white photographs and black line drawings.
