Pediatric specialist from “Hospital for active treatment and emergency medicine – N.I. Pirogov” with Special Initiative: Summer Academy for Parents “First Aid for Little Heroes.”

On two consecutive Saturdays, pediatric specialist from the University Hospital “N.I. Pirogov” held the first ever Summer academy for parents themed “First Aid for Little Heroes”. The training was conducted by the Head of Pediatric Orthopedic and Traumatology – Dr. Yavor Pukalski and his team, also – pediatric resuscitator Dr. Elena Ivanova and pediatric surgeon Dr. Georgi Ivanov.

The training session had strong practical part on emergency response and aroused great interest among the attendants.

As a long-standing friend and partner to the dedicated specialist from the Pediatric Block at “N.I.Pirogov”, we at Vedra International pharmaceutical company were pleased to be part of this initiative. Being a parent is the most wonderful feeling but it can also be the most stressful, especially in emergency situations when prompt and adequate reaction is required.

Each training session included response in situations such as:

  • Foreign bodies
  • Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
  • Drowning
  • Tick bites
  • Sunburn
  • Allergic reaction
  • Trauma of the muscle-skeletal system
  • Wound treatment

In some of the acted-out situations, pediatric specialists recommended the natural herbal oil Theresienoil that is suitable for use in cases of injuries, insect bites and all kind of burns. With a 100% natural content of natural fats and herbal extracts, Theresienoil has proven moisturizing, epithelizing, pain relieving and skin nourishing properties.

To stay calm and in control in situations when parents and children are under stress and pressure, specialists recommend Rescue by Dr. Bach’s drops, spray and pastilles. Rescue is universal blend of flower essences that is trusted by millions of people around the world as harmless and quick way to deal with emotional imbalance caused by various problematic or stressful life situations.

We are grateful to the team of specialists from University Hospital “N.I.Pirogov” for the heled Summer academy for parents “First aid for little heroes”. We believe that everyone who has attended the training sessions, feels more confident and prepared to deal with the challenge to be a parent.
