CPR for Infants and Children

CPR can save a child’s life by providing the brain, heart and other organs with life-giving oxygen in the event of respiratory and/or cardiac arrest. Drowning, poisoning, accidents, smoke inhalation and SIDS are only a few of the emergencies that could result in death if not treated quickly.


A number of resources and courses are available to help parents and caregivers learn how to administer CPR in the event of an emergency.
