Did You Know?
Infant CPR CPR is modified for infants or babies that are twelve months old and younger. Cardiac arrests in babies usually happen because of drowning and choking from small objects. Perform five cycles of CPR and rescue breaths for two minutes before calling your local emergency number.
- Place the baby on his or her back on a firm surface such as the ground or a table
- Place two fingers or wrap your hand around the chest and use both thumbs on the center of the chest, slightly below the nipples
- Give 30 compressions followed by two rescue breaths (trained rescuer) or 100 compressions in a minute (untrained rescuer)
- To give rescue breaths to a baby, tip head back gently and open mouth by lifting the chin and pushing down on the forehead
- Pinch the nose and check for chest rising and falling during rescue breaths
