CPR for Children

CPR for children is similar to performing standard CPR for adults. There are, however, 5 differences.

1) If you are alone with the child give one minute of CPR before calling ambulance.

2) Use the heel of one hand for chest compressions

3) Press the sternum down 1 to 1.5 inches

4) Give chest compressions at the rate of 100 per minute

5) Give 1 full breath followed by 5 chest compressions
