How many moms know "CPR"

Posted by   + Show Post
I was wondering how many of the mothers on CM know CPR, did you know that learning this life saving technique can increases survival from 30% to 80% if CPR is performed as quickly as possible...I realize that thinking of something horrible happening to your children is not something you want to do, but with young children trying different foods for the first they can have an allergic reaction and CPR can save your child's life. A few years ago I was at a public swimming pool with my kids when a 6 year old boy was missing, they found him quickly (within 3 min) but the life guards there were not properly trained and the child died before they reached the hospital...I felt so helpless so I decided there and then that I would not trust the life of my kids to teens working for the summer.CPR is a 16 hour course that may change the outcome of something like this happening( not always, but if it works one time its worth it) I am in the process of getting my instructors licenses to teach this and will be able to teach whoever is interested on line, there is no charge for this, Its something that I feel strongly about..I just wanted to see if there would be people interested.

I am CPR certified for all ages (infant/child/adult) by the American red cross.
I did it so that if I ever needed to I could help save my daughter's (or another) life. I think every mother and caregiver should be certified!

I know it but I'm definitely a little rusty.  I went to school to be an EMT about 5 yrs ago...so it's been a while.  I'd really like to take a cpr to be refreshed on it b/c I'm afraid I've forgotten exactly how to do it.

I have used it on a 12 year old that drowned and he survived, I was never so happy, or so tired, in all of my life
