Care delayed is a time when a child's survival potential could be slipping away, often because bystanders are untrained and feel unprepared to assist in a medical emergency.

Mastering pediatric CPR through the Los Angeles Skills Academy course is a vital step to overcoming this fear and safeguarding children from potential harm.

The Pediatric CPR certification program teaches the essentials of delivering life-saving resuscitation to young children and infants. As part of the training, participants learn to swiftly identify signs of respiratory and cardiac distress, handle chest pains, respond to choking incidents effectively, and aid individuals who have lost consciousness.

Proper methods for administering chest compressions and rescue breaths are outlined, including guidelines on how to safeguard the well-being of young individuals.

Pediatric AED Skills Training

Using an Automated External Defibrillator is a crucial step when traditional CPR has failed—it's a swift way to potentially save a life in an emergency.

The section of the course focusing on AED training delves into the precise handling of this life-saving tool in the context of addressing diverse pediatric medical emergencies. It instructs learners in understanding the AED's mechanism for heart rhythm restoration, the appropriate trigger points for its use, and the safe, effective usage for infants and young children.

The program adheres to the American Heart Association standards for infant and child AED use in pediatric environments featuring specialized pads designed for children under the age of eight and weighing under 55 pounds. After the age of eight, children can be treated with regular adult AED pads as per guidelines.

The incorporation of an AED alongside essential chest compressions and rescue breathing methods is explained, with a focus on the crucial aspect of identifying when the AED may no longer be efficacious in reviving the patient's heart activity.
