Columbia’s Best Infant CPR Classes
Know CPR. Make a difference. Save a life.
Adults can require CPR for various reasons, but infants and young children typically need CPR to address a breathing issue or cardiac arrest caused by breathing issues.
While we hope you never need to use your training, here are some statistics on why you should be trained in CPR for infants:
- In 2018, over 21,000 infants died, with Sudden Infant Death (SIDS) and suffocation being the 4th and 5th leading causes, respectively.
- 7,000+ children experience cardiac arrest each year.
- The most common cause of cardiac arrest in young children is respiratory failure or block in the airway.
- Other situations that may demand infant CPR include head trauma, electrical shock, poisoning, near drowning, severe asthma, or smoke inhalation.
Having this training gives you the power to react with lifesaving knowledge. Our team ensures that you can confidently use BLS, CPR, and AED skills in any possible event. You will understand how to —
- Prevent, spot, and respond to infant breathing and cardiac emergencies.
- Handle an infant properly during a crisis.
- Give immediate relief to a Baby choking.
What is CPR?
Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation is a vital procedure that incorporates rescue breathing and surface chest compressions to —
- Furnish oxygen-rich blood flow to vital organs, including the brain.
- Correct breathing patterns until first responders arrive and give more life support.
- Restore breathing and heartbeat after cardiac arrest, heart attack, stroke, or drowning.
Note: Only perform CPR on babies who are unconscious, unresponsive, and are not breathing independently.
What to Expect in Your CPR Classes
You will learn how to identify the seven CPR steps, find the pulse, perform finger and palm chest compressions, and ultimately restore a child or adult’s regular breathing. Gaining your American Heart Association certificate, you will meet OSHA requirements and leave confident to help anyone needing CPR.
