Fundamentals of Pediatric Trauma and Injury Care: Key Considerations and Recommendations from Experts Club

In today’s realities, knowledge of the basics of pediatric trauma and injury care is becoming a necessity not only for medical professionals, but also for the general public. In a new video on the Experts Club YouTube channel, Mariana Bolyuk, anesthesiologist at ADONIS Medical Group, reviewed the main aspects and recommendations that will help to provide the necessary care in critical situations, based on the latest data from the Ministry of Health of Ukraine and international organizations.

Main aspects of trauma care

Traumas and injuries in children are a serious problem that requires immediate and proper response. According to the Ministry of Health of Ukraine, the number of injuries in children has been steadily increasing in recent years. In the last year alone, almost 97500 Ukrainians sought medical assistance for injuries of varying severity resulting from falls and other accidents.

According to the latest data, more than 1,806 children in Ukraine have been injured as a result of military actions. According to information from juvenile prosecutors, 537 children died and over 1,269 received injuries of varying degrees of severity. The largest number of injured children was registered in the following regions: in Donetsk region – 524, Kharkiv region – 343, Kherson region – 149, Kyiv region – 130, Dnipropetrovsk region – 125, Mykolaiv region – 103 and Zaporizhzhya region – 100.

“Among the main causes of early deaths in traumas, central nervous system contusions and bleeding stand out. It is important to know that timely first aid can save a life and significantly reduce the risk of serious health consequences”, – explained Bolyuk.

Maxim Urakin, founder of the Experts Club information and analytical center, said that the project was and is engaged in all kinds of assistance to civilians during military operations.

“According to the UN data, about 11 thousand civilians have already been killed in Ukraine for 2 years, of which about 600 are children. After the implemented project “Find loved ones” we spend our efforts on trainings on medicine for first aid for adults and children, conduct practical seminars for journalists and teachers in order to get practical skills that can save the health and life of victims”, – emphasized Urakin.

Recommendations on first aid

It is important to remember the basic principles of first aid for injuries and wounds. The main recommendations from Maryana Bolyuk and Experts Club, listed in the video:

  • Assess the condition of the injured person: check consciousness, breathing, pulse.
  • Stop bleeding: use direct pressure on the wound and, if necessary, apply a tourniquet above the injury site to temporarily stop arterial bleeding.
  • Preventing shock: lay the victim down, elevate the legs, and provide warmth and comfort.
  • Call for emergency medical help immediately: in the case of serious injuries, professional medical help should be sought as soon as possible.

It is also vital to receive regular first aid training to update your life-saving knowledge and skills.

Knowing the basic principles of first aid for pediatric injuries and trauma is critical for all of us. In today’s world where accidents happen daily, this knowledge and skill can be crucial in saving lives. Remember, your preparedness and ability to act in an emergency can make a significant difference.

Experts Club conducted a training session for teachers on pre-medical care for children

With the start of the new school year, new rules came into force in Ukraine, providing for different training regimes depending on the level of security in different regions. These measures were introduced in response to the high level of danger.

Taking into account the current situation and the importance of ensuring the safety of pupils and students, the Experts Club training and analysis center in Kyiv organized a training seminar on pre-medical assistance for teachers. The training, which took place on September 29 in Kyiv, was designed to provide teachers with the necessary skills to provide first aid in case of wounds and injuries.

The seminar was organized by the Experts Club think tank and medical partner Adonis. The seminar was also supported by the charity organization Hromada Priirpeniya Foundation and information support from Interfax-Ukraine news agency and Open4business portal.

The main presenter of the training was Maryana Bolyuk, an anesthesiologist and representative of the Adonis group of medical centers. Maryana is a co-author of 12 scientific publications and has rich experience in the field of medicine.

During the seminar, teachers and educators received not only theoretical knowledge, but also practical skills necessary to provide first aid to children in various situations. Among the main topics covered were:

1. Basics of pre-medical care: The workshop participants learned the basic principles and steps to follow when providing first aid, including assessing the situation, ensuring safety, calling for emergency medical assistance and providing emergency interventions.

2. Treating different types of wounds and injuries: Trainers learned how to properly treat wounds, stop bleeding, fix fractures, and treat bruises and sprains.

3. Pre-medical care for children: Teachers gained specialized knowledge on first aid for children, taking into account their body characteristics and emotional reactions.

4. Practical exercises: Practical exercises were an important part of the workshop, including modeling different situations and practicing first aid skills.

Training teachers and educators in first aid for children with injuries and trauma is an important initiative to promote safety in educational institutions. Experts Club and Adonis will continue to support such educational initiatives to ensure the highest level of safety in educational institutions of Ukraine.

Maksym Urakin, founder of Experts Club, emphasized that teachers play a key role in children’s lives and knowledge of pre-medical care skills is a part of education that can save lives.

“Such workshops help teachers not only feel more confident in emergency situations, but also provide them with the opportunity to teach their students the basics of first aid, which is also an important skill for everyone,” Urakin noted.

The training was attended by university professors and school teachers from Kyiv and the Bucha district of Kyiv region.
Oleksandr Golizdra, Chairman of the Committee on Information Policy and Relations with Local Authorities of the Public Council at the Bucha District State Administration, asked the participants to pass on the knowledge and skills gained to their colleagues in educational institutions.

According to Tetyana Lagovska, executive director of the Pryirpin Community Foundation, the main thing in first aid is the efficiency of actions to stabilize the victim’s condition. However, as the volunteer noted, it is also important to adhere to the principle of “do no harm,” so it is important to know what should and should not be done before the arrival of professional doctors.

The participants of the training expressed their gratitude to the organizers and the instructor for the valuable knowledge and experience gained at the training. They also emphasized the importance of such events and hope that such educational seminars will continue in the future. In addition, each participant received as a gift a fully equipped first aid kit for first aid in case of wounds.

The pre-medical care workshop for teachers was an example of how educational institutions and medical partners can collaborate to ensure the safety of students and staff. These efforts will help strengthen the education system and prepare teachers for the variety of challenges they may face in educational institutions in war.

Experts Club and Adonis pledge to continue to support and conduct similar educational initiatives, as they see them as an opportunity to make education safer and encompass not only academic but also life skills.
