  • Yeah, I though everyone did. We had to learn all that to graduate HS.

  • yup, calling 911 only gets help on its way to you, its not an instant thing. Unfortunately not all 911 operators are cpr trained or even certified, it's not required that they be. So the person you're calling for help may be as clueless as the caller. I'd rather know what to do myself so I can save my child's life.

  • I took a class when I was pregnant with my first... that was 15 yrs ago.
    I plan on updating everything this summer with my 15 yr old.
    I need it to be a brownie leader and my 15 yr old needs it to help her find a job.

  • Yes, but it's not really that important to know. There is such a small chance you will ever use it and if you do there is only a small chance it will work.

    I was a lifeguard and I saved a drunk guy that forgot he didn't know how to swim. I was at Disney World and did CPR on a guy that had a heart attack until the EMT got there. That guy died. My mom did CPR on my dead grandfather for over an hour waiting for an amulance to come. It got in an accident. She was really traumatized by it. She knew he was dead but we had been taught that once you start never stop.

  • SO is an EMT and yes, he taught me how to do both.

  • Yes. They taught us before my son was released from the NICU when he was born. I'm glad to know. Granted, he may not ever need, (hopefully), and I know there is only a small chance that it will work, as an above poster mention...however, when concerning my child's life, I'd rather have some chance than none if he needed it. I'll gladly take an and all precautions when regarding my child.
