Choking is the leading cause of unintentional death in infants. Aside from this, there are other accidents that cause an infant’s heartbeat and breathing to stop, for which one may need to do CPR, including:

  • Suffocation
  • Drowning
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Head trauma or serious injury
  • Lung disease
  • Poisoning
  • Electrical shock

CPR for Infants

CPR should be done on an infant who has the following symptoms:

  • No breathing
  • No pulse
  • Unconsciousness

CPR or cardiopulmonary resuscitation is a lifesaving procedure that is done when someone’s breathing or heartbeat has stopped. It involves:

  • Chest compressions to keep blood flowing, and
  • Rescue breathing to provide oxygen to the lungs.

One must continue these procedures until the infant’s heartbeat and breathing return, or trained medical help arrives, to prevent permanent brain damage or death which can occur within minutes if blood flow stops.

CPR can be lifesaving, but it is best done by someone trained in an accredited CPR course. All parents and people who take care of children should learn Infant and Child CPR.
