How many moms know "CPR"
April 4, 2008 at 5:23 PM
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 learned as a CNA, but it's been few yrs since my last refresher!  My hubby takes a First Aid class for work, so he is probably better than me.

    things have changed allot in the last few years, you can still refresh without taking the whole class if you are interested in doing so

    I'm not certified but I have a copy of the procedure for the hemlock and CPR on babies and small children. I've read it a lot but I keep it on hand for other people who might stay with children.

    I know how.  I let my certificate run out a few years ago.  I know, shame on me.  But I will be getting it back again soon b/c I am in school to become an elementary teacher.  i think everyone should know cpr.
