Quick first aid tips for a child with a head injury:
- Calm the child. Do not raise your voice or panic. You do not want to induce shock.
- Use a clean piece of cloth or gauze and put direct pressure on the wound if it is bleeding. Add more cloth and pressure if the bleeding persists.
- If the child is 12 months and younger, bring to the ER. If the child is older than 12 months, stem the bleeding and monitor the child.
- Watch out for sleepiness/drowsiness and vomiting. If any of these happen, bring the child to the ER.
