Pediatric CPR Skills Training

The Pediatric CPR certification equips learners with life-saving skills tailored to infants and kids, focusing on CPR techniques, symptom recognition for respiratory and cardiac issues, as well as handling instances like chest pain, choking, and blackouts.

Proper methods for administering chest compressions and rescue breathing aid are essential for safeguarding the well-being of young individuals in distress. This information ensures that medical assistance is offered in a way that prioritizes their health and safety.

Pediatric AED Skills Training

Using an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) could greatly increase the chances of saving a life if standard CPR doesn't succeed.

The segment on AED instruction in our program is designed to instruct candidates on precise AED usage for addressing different pediatric medical crises. It familiarizes participants with the AED's functionality in normalizing heart rhythms, the right moment to intervene with the device, and the correct protocols for infants and small children.

This program is compliant with the American Heart Association's AED guidelines, tailored specifically for pediatric settings. It instructs on the proper use of AEDs on infants and children, emphasizing the use of attenuated pads designed for kids under eight years old and weighing 55 pounds or less. Pads designed for adults are suitable for children older than eight years.

A combination of automated external defibrillator (AED) application, chest compression, and rescue breathing are included in training protocols. It also emphasizes the importance of recognizing when an AED may not be the optimal treatment for restoring a patient's heart rhythm.
