Infant/Child (CPR)

CPR

Care for those eight and under

With the MEDIC FIRST AID Infant/Child Supplement, currently trained adult CPR and first aid providers can learn lifesaving skills that will prepare them to care for patients eight years old and younger. Responding to an ill or injured infant or child can be especially difficult and stressful. The Infant/Child Supplement teaches student to remain calm, confident, and in control of the situation. This often positively effects the patient’s response to the care provided.
