The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is pleased to bring you the Second Edition of its national pediatric first aid course, Pediatric First Aid for Caregivers and Teachers (PedFACTs).

This participant manual is the core of the PedFACTs course with features that reinforce and expand on the essential information. Each emergency topic is divided into three sections: •What You Should Know: Provides background information. •What You Should Look For: Provides assessment information. •What You Should Do: Provides first aid treatment information?The “4Cs of Pediatric First Aid” help focus providers on the steps they need to take to safely manage emergencies: Check, Call, Care, and Complete. New to the Second Edition, instructors can choose to teach the entire course in the classroom setting or have their students take the 2-hour online course before coming to class for the on-site skills and scenarios.
