Topic - Infant CPR Training
It’s incredibly important to know CPR, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, if Sally has a choking incident or a near drowning event. Actually, I encourage you to take a first aid class along with a CPR class if it’s offered. There’s a reason we have pediatricians. Caring for babies and children is very different from the treatments for teens, adults and elderly. CPR techniques for teens could cause serious damage to a baby. In emergency rooms, I’ve seen packages of life-saving tools marked “for pediatric use only”. Kids are small and so is the equipment used to treat them. Medications used for adults could cause lasting damage to a baby or toddler. It’s not just a matter of making things smaller, it’s knowing exactly what to do. Professionals can give you the benefit of their knowledge and experience. Be prepared. You can’t live with the consequences.
