Are there any websites or anything that show you how to do infant CPR?

I can't believe I don't know how to do this...I was sitting in traffic today and realized I don't. Anyone know any websites that show you how?

  • Oh and one more thing...when you give breaths, only force the amount of air in that it would take to inflate an unrolled condom...most infants come in to the er with exploded lungs from too large of breaths given.

    Contact your local chapter, take a class; local hospitals also often offer classes. No one should have a baby without taking first aid and CPR (didn't your doctor tell you to take a class?). I wouldn't let my 13 year old babysit without taking a class (she is getting recertified next week)

  • i googled it and found several great sites with demenstrations, and then I watched "The Doctors" and they did it exactly as the sites i had seen, all of them stressed the importance of not blowing too hard.
