Effective CPR and First Aid Training
All our training teachers teach the latest methods and techniques. Check out the latest infant CPR techniques shown below. The presentation is made by a trained workplace-approved emergency first aid teacher.
Here are some simple tips on providing CPR to an infant (0-12months):
- When providing chest compression use only two fingers and compress the chest approximately 1/3 the depth of the chest.
- When opening the airway, ensure that the chin and the nose are parallel to the ground. Opening the airway any further or not enough will not allow for effective airflow.
- Currently, no AEDs are available for public use for infants. Do not use an adult AED on an infant, it will not work.
- When providing ventilation for an infant, only give enough air so that the infant’s chest rises. Providing more air beyond the required can create negative complications.
