As a Mom the days I dread are those when a cuddle alerts me of a fever brewing up inside my little one. All of us know that a fever can be nipped in the bud quickly if the required care and attention is given immediately.
Unfortunately giving a child some medicine isn’t always as easy as it sounds. The over-medicating cases we read of in newspaper articles aren’t made up but are sadly a reality in some homes.
Misuse of over-the-counter medications are involved in approximately one-third of emergency department visits among children under the age of 12. Of those visits, 80% of them are due to unsupervised children taking medications on their own and 10% of emergency department visits in this age group are due to medication errors.
To avoid those “mistakes”, PediaCare has come out with a new single dose medication product. With only one dose included in each child-resistant packet, the threat of overdosing is greatly reduced.
And knowing many parents will have questions and concerns on how to treat a fever and cold in a child, they’ve set up a Webinar, that will be chaired by Dr David Hill. This is one Webinar every parent can benefit from.
More on Dr. David Hill:
Dr. David Hill is a well known pediatrician and author of Dad to Dad: Parenting like a Pro. More importantly, he’s a Dad!
He will provide a media briefing via WebEx in which he discusses tips for treating children when they’re sick and will introduce a new single dose children’s medicine product from PediaCare(R). Attendees will also have an opportunity to ask Dr. Hill questions about best practices for treating fever and pain in children and can register to receive product samples.
