    Broken Bones Child

    Broken bones always need professional attention, but there's action you can take immediately to help the casualty.


    Because children tend to put their arms out as they fall, arms, elbows and wrists are where breaks tend to occur.

    Intense pain
    Inability to use the limb
    Bruising or deformity at site of the break

    Actions - broken arm
    Sit child down
    Ask them to support injured arm with other hand
    Put a pad between arm and chest
    Put injured arm in a sling
    Place a broad-fold bandage over sling and around arm and chest
    Take child to hospital

    Actions - broken leg
    Lay child down and support leg at ankle and knee joints - by hand if an ambulance is expected soon, or on a chair if not
    Steady injured leg with padding
    Put rolled-up blankets outside injured limb and between legs
    Keep child warm
    Call 999

    What is it?
    Cramp is typically caused by fatigue or strain, for example when exercising. It's a painful, involuntary muscle contraction, which usually occurs in the legs and feet.

    First aid aims
    Relieve pain and discomfort

    For cramp in the foot, massage the foot
    For cramp in the lower leg, straighten the leg and massage the muscles while pulling the foot upwards towards the shin
    For cramp in the upper leg, straighten the casualty's leg and massage the affected muscle until the pain passes.
