Hayward CPR Training & First Aid Classes – CPR Certification in Hayward

Despite our best efforts and care, infants are prone to emergencies. It is estimated that in the United States, among infants who suffer from cardiac arrest outside the hospital premises, only less than half receive a bystander CPR. There are infants who survive a cardiac arrest, but many cases among them suffer from brain damage. If an infant who have suffered from cardiac arrest receives a bystander CPR, he/she has a successful return of spontaneous circulation (ROCS).

Some of the other causes of infant deaths in the country are due to prematurity complications and congenital malformations. Injury is the leading cause of death among children over 1 year. One of the leading causes of injury is motor vehicle accident caused due to negligence. Hence, it is imperative for parents of new born children to take pediatric CPR and first aid training in Hayward.

But according to the American Heart Association in 2010, the recommended procedure for CPR is CAB sequence is (Chest compressions, airway, breathing/ ventilations) procedure.
