    What about infant CPR, isn’t there a separate course, that is different from the adult CPR ? Not sure if this is true or not

      Hey Lightning,
      You can read about infant cpr in CPR/AED course even though it is not as apprehensive and differs from adult procedures.
      Major need for cpr in babies is not heart attack like in adults but mostly drowning, suffocation or choking.Taking this in consideration, and infants been more fragile than adults, infants need oxigen-air along with compressions. It is also very important to learn how to clear babies air way since infants tend to jam awkward objects in the mouth. The rule of thumb is DON’T PANIC, remember ABC rules and get to it soon as possible.

    Is it normal to hear and feel pops and snaps when performing CPR on someone, am I breaking something in the chest?

    • admin says:

      Yes It is normal to feel pops when you first begin chest compressions, don’t worry, continue to do compressions. Don’t stop until help arrives or victim wakes up. Remember 2 hand 2 inch rule, you don’t want to be pressing too hard to fracture victim’s ribs, especially if performing cpr on person with fragile body constitution. Just use your best judgment and stay calm.

    Research shows that 30 minute CPR class works effectively
    in real lifesaving procedures.
    Study at University of Texas shows
    20 minutes instruction in CPR as effective as four hour course study.
    Getting larger number of people certified with short courses in CPR and defibrillator use should save more lifes in public places.
