Every parent should know how and when to administer CPR. When performed correctly,CPR can save a child's life by restoring breathing and circulation until advanced help arrives by medical care provides.

What is CPR? Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is a combination of rescue breathing (mouth-mouth resuscitation) and chest compressions . If a child is not breathing or circulating blood adequately, CPR can restore circulation of oxygen-rich blood to the brain. Without oxygen, permanent brain damage or death can occur in less than 8 minutes.

CPR may be necessary for children during many different emergencies, including accidents ,suffocation, poisoning, smoke inhalation, electrocution injures, potentially for fall (stairways and slippery floors), and sudden death syndrome (SIDS) also known as crib death.
