As parents, we hope that we’ll never have to use cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on our children. Nonetheless, it is super important that we equip ourselves with the knowledge and steps so that in an event of an emergency, you’ll have an idea on how to perform CPR and what measures to take.
Do note that infant CPR is slightly different than an adult’s. For the purpose of this article, ‘infants’ are referred to babies age 0- 12 months old.
CPR should only be performed if breathing has stopped and the infant is unresponsive or unconscious”.
