    First aid for choking: ● If an infant or child is coughing, let him or her try to cough up the object. If the object does not release quickly, try to remove the object from the child’s mouth.
    ● If the object is still lodged in the child’s throat:

    For infants or young children:
    ● Support the head and neck.
    ● Turn the baby or young child face down with the head lower than the feet. Deliver five careful blows to the back between the shoulder blades. Turn the baby face up and press firmly on the breastbone between the nipples five times. Repeat (face down and face up) until the object is dislodged.
    ● If you cannot dislodge the object, take the child to the nearest health worker immediately.

    For larger children:
    ● Stand behind the child with your arms around the child’s waist.
    ● Form a clenched fist with your thumb against the child’s body, above the navel and below the rib cage.
    ● Put the other hand over the fist and give a sharp inward and upward thrust into the child’s abdomen. Repeat until the object is dislodged.
    ● If you cannot dislodge the object, take the child to the nearest health worker immediately.
    First aid for breathing problems or drowning:
    ● If there is any possibility of injury to the head or neck, do not move the child’s head. Follow the breathing directions below without moving the head.
    ● If the child is having difficulty breathing or is not breathing, lay the child flat on the back and tilt her or his head back slightly. Pinch the child’s nostrils closed and blow (breathe) into the mouth, keeping all the mouth covered. Blow gently but hard enough to make the child’s chest rise. Then, count to three and blow again. Continue until the child begins breathing.
    ● If the child is breathing but unconscious, roll the child onto his or her side so the tongue does not block breathing.
    ● If a person who cannot swim sees a child drowning in deep water, the person should immediately throw a rope, floating device or tree branch to the child and shout loudly so that others can come to help rescue the child.

    First aid for poisoning: ● If a child has swallowed poison, do not try to make the child vomit. This may make the child more ill.
    ● If poison is on the child’s skin or clothes, remove the clothing and pour large amounts of water over the skin. Wash the skin thoroughly several times with soap.
    ● If a child gets poison in his or her eyes, splash clean water in the eyes for at least 10 minutes.
    ● Take the child immediately to a health centre or hospital if any of these situations occur. If possible, bring a sample of the poison or medicine or its container with you. Keep the child as still and quiet as possible.
    ● If a child is bitten by a venomous or rabid animal, it is important to see a health-care provider immediately for treatment.

    Excuse Me for Interrupting Cheta...

    //If a child is bitten by a venomous or rabid animal, it is important to see a health-care provider immediately for treatment.//

    Yup It'd be better if coupled with the Provision of Standard Anti-rabies Serum..

    Yes Kar, U r right. Here the description given are immediate responding towards the injury. As it is not possible for individuals to have a Rabies vaccine or the antidote with them due to cost factor and the storage condition it requires, it will comes under the responsibility of the Health care provider to possess the required medications on stock.

    And by the way you are not interrupting actually, this was the final episode of the description.

    On behalf of Penmai, thanks to UNESCO, WHO and UNICEF for providing a detailed and basic requisites for the children welfare.

    I wish the required info from all the 'Meipporul' episodes shall be shared in our e-mag.
