Infant CPR Training

Infant CPR Training

For parents and future parents-Information

Our children are the most precious thing we have. When they’re in pain, we’re in pain.
The first few days, after a baby is born, are the most sensitive.
During those days, we hardly take the baby out of the house to avoid any possible dangers.
While we do everything we can to protect the helpless infant, we still cannot shield it from all harm.
Also, it should be noted that babies cry as a way of communicating.
Since they cannot put to words what bothers them, it’s crucial that we learn to identify medical emergencies.
Especially those common in infants, respiratory emergencies (apnea, foreign object suffocation), drowning, dehydration, domestic accidents, head injuries, and allergic reactions.
Later, when children play outside, they are exposed to animal-related injuries. Such as fractures (rather common since most of the bones haven’t fully hardened), etc.
This is why we need to provide them with the initial medical treatment until an advanced medical team arrives.
In the Infant CPR Training parents will practice what they had learned throughout the course. Some treatments include infant CPR, Heimlich maneuver, bandaging, splinting, etc.
By being prepared, parents will be able, if necessary, to identify different types of of injuries. In turn, allowing them to provide the appropriate vital primary live-saving medical treatment.
At the end of the course, each parent will receive a First Aid Course Certificate.
