Great TV Can pick us up during the cold and dark winter months. The return of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here this Sunday at 9pm has got us all looking forward to parachuting into the Australian jungle with this year’s campmates (all from the comfort of our own living room of course).

Some of us will have looked forward to this all year as for some reason, witnessing a group of celebrities tremble with fear as they are tormented with bugs, snakes and other critters as they complete bushtucker trials is guaranteed to brighten up our evenings.

Whether you work with children in a nursery setting or teach in a school, paediatric first aid knowledge is essential in providing you with confidence in responding to an emergency situation if one were to arise.

Children are generally more prone to accidents than adults would be. It is therefore necessary for teachers to have some first aid knowledge.

You and a friend are eating lunch together and you suddenly see them grab their throat and begin to panic. You realise that they are, in fact, choking. Would you know how to help in this situation?

Choking occurs as a result of a partially or fully blocked airway. Choking in adults most commonly occurs when food becomes stuck in the wind wipe, reducing the airflow and as a result, leaves the victim struggling to breathe. A serious lack of airflow brought on by choking can cause brain damage or even death by asphyxiation.
