Did you know that early resuscitation can improve survival rates by up to 60%?
Maintaining oxygen to the brain and heart does not just save a life, but also helps avoid brain damage…transforming the life of a little one!
Whatever your role: parent, neighbour, friend or professional such as schoolteacher or child minder, this course will give you vital skills that could help preserve or restore life to an infant or young child. As a first responder, early delivery of CPR has been shown through medical research to make all the difference in the world!
This course will help you to develop life-saving skills which can keep a person alive until professional help arrives. These skills include safe assessment of the collapsed individual, dealing with a choking baby or child, effective airway management (‘keeping the breathing passageways open’), and how to competently perform CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) if necessary.
There are no eligibility restrictions for this course as it is open to any member of the public or professionals who would like to learn the first responder emergency care skills for both babies and children.
The Baby and Child Life support course meets the UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2021.
