We know. Yuck. Who wants to think about deep wounds? But it’s good to be prepared right? Sarah Hunstead from CPR Kids explains, in a calm and considered way, how to look after a wound if your child hurts themselves.

Sarah has over 14 years experience in Paediatric Emergency Nursing, and is continually amazed by the things that children get up to. CPR Kids empowers families and carers with essential First Aid skills to recognise and respond to their sick or injured child with confidence.
