Here is a brilliant resource for remembering Baby CPR (under one year or very small), as it is different to the older child or adult CPR. Remember - if your child is not breathing than CPR is the best chance of survival for your baby, do not avoid CPR in fear of "hurting" them.
Here's a quick note of what to do:
- Send a bystander to call for an ambulance, if you are alone start CPR immediately (999 or 112 if you have no signal).
- 5 initial breath puffs over nose and mouth.
- 30 chest pumps (using only two fingers in the center of the chest)
- Two rescue breaths over nose and mouth.
- 30 more chest pumps.
- *** If you are alone and have not called for an ambulance, now is the time to do it after 1 minute of CPR***
Continue 30 chest compression followed by 2 rescue breaths until help arrives!
