Save Your Baby’s Life With Infant CPR
If Tragedy were to occur are properly trained to save your child's life. Did you know Infant CPR is different from Adult CPR. If not please book a class your baby life could depend on it
Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is the sudden and unexplained death of a baby younger than 1 year old. SIDS is sometimes called crib death. This is because the death may happen when the baby is sleeping in a crib. SIDS is one of the leading causes of death in babies from ages 1 month to 1 year.
What to do if you find your child unresponsive.
Immediately Begin CPR.
1. Shout and Tap
Shout and gently tap the child on the shoulder. If there is no response and not breathing or not breathing normally, position the infant on his or her back and begin CPR.
2. Give 30 Compressions
Give 30 gentle chest compressions at the rate of 100-120/minute. Use two or three fingers in the center of the chest just below the nipples. Press down approximately one-third the depth of the chest (about 1 and a half inches).
3. Open The Airway
Open the airway using a head tilt lifting of chin. Do not tilt the head too far back
4. Give 2 Gentle Breaths
If the baby is not breathing or not breathing normally, cover the baby's mouth and nose with your mouth and give 2 gentle breaths. Each breath should be 1 second long. You should see the baby's chest rise with each breath.
And repeat until you child becomes responsive or emergency services arrive.
