Infant/Newborn CPR

  • Babies 'R Us 1645 Northwest 107th Avenue Miami, FL, 33172 United States (map)

Hands on class of the pediatric CPR process with easy to follow guidelines for proper pediatric CPR procedures according to the new American Heart Association's latest updates and recommendations.

The Family & Friends CPR Course teaches the lifesaving skills of infant CPR and mild and severe airway block for infants. Skills are taught in a dynamic group environment using the AHA’s research-proven practice-while-watching technique, which provides students with the most hands-on CPR practice time possible.

Family & Friends CPR is for people who want to learn CPR but do not need a CPR course completion card to meet a job requirement. This course is ideal for community groups, new parents, grandparents, babysitters, and others interested in learning how to save a life.

Drowning is the leading cause of injury-related death among children ages 1 to 4 -- and the second-leading cause of death in children 14 and under. Young kids are especially at risk because they're curious, fast, and attracted to water but are not yet able to understand how dangerous it is. I know, because as a kid you couldn't tell my anything! Sheesh! I'm still curious as a cat. 

But even worst, drowning can happen in as little as 20 seconds, even in water that is only inches deep. Most infant drowning or near-drowning cases happen in backyard pools, bath tubs and inflatable pools. Natural bodies of water, toilets and drainage sites are all places where drowning can occur.

It takes about four to six minutes for the cells of the brain and other organs to start dying, and often this process is not reversible.  CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) uses chest compressions to mimic the heart beat and mouth-to-mouth to mimic breathing.  CPR is really a skill every parent should have.  It can literally be the difference between life and death.
