CPR: Infant

Infant CPR or cardiopulmonary resuscitation is a technique that can be used revive an infant whose heart has stopped beating or who has stopped breathing. This technique uses gentle chest compression and mouth-to-mouth breathing. To ensure a clear airway, the infant’s head must be tilted back and breaths can be performed. The breathing is performed with chest compressions (using 3rd and 4th fingers) until a pulse and breathing is returned or until advanced life support is available. CPR training courses are widely available and teach the full technique that is not described here.
