PSA of the Day: Infant CPR & Choking Refresher

The holidays are upon us and that may mean you’ll be entertaining family, maybe family with babies. What a great time for an infant CPR and choking primer!

PSA of the Day: Infant CPR and Choking Refresher

Y’all know I love a PSA.  Check it HERE, HERE and HERE.

Years ago, I worked in a hospital and we had to take CPR classes regularly.  Today, I feel I could successfully perform CPR on an adult in an emergency.  But, what about babies or small children?  Their needs are different, and the techniques for CPR or choking, modified.

To the film! Someone get the lights:

NOTE: Rescue breaths given to an infant are smaller, just enough to see their chest rise.

Here are two good sites to reference for more info:

Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED

Infant first aid for choking and CPR: An illustrated guide

Infant CPR and choking aren’t the most pleasant topics, but ones that needs to be periodically addressed.

Thank you for taking the time to read through the post.  Hopefully, you’ll never need to perform infant CPR (it’s more likely you’ll have to respond to choking), but if you do, you’ve got the information you need.

Now go enjoy this holiday season confidant that you can save the day…if necessary.

Agreed on all points, but even if someone doesn't go so far as to get certified (yay, you!), this refresher could save a life.
