Do you know CPR?

Have you ever had to use it? I took a course last night, and I started wondering: Why wasn't infant CPR taught in our birthing class? Seems like it would be a good idea.

I know the steps for adult and infant CPR, but I've never practiced or had to do it.

Oh and infant CPR is taught in NC before you leave the hospital.

I think at the very least CPR is something everyone should take a course in. It just makes sense.

I was certified in CPR as a teen but haven't had any further training in years.

 I'm CPR certified and it was taught in my birthing class.

I've done it countless times. Adults and children. Pediatric codes are horrible. We will work those for hours. No one wants to call it.

That makes sense! I wonder why they don't do that in my area.
