In this section, we are going to look at Paediatric CPR which stands for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation.

CPR is delivered to someone who is not breathing. In separate videos, we will look at child and infant CPR and then cover different aspects of including an introduction to AED use.

In terms of CPR, infants are defined as under one-year-old and children are defined as from one to 18 years old.

You do not need to know the exact age of the child, if you are unable to do CPR compressions with two fingers as you would on an infant use one hand as you would use on a child. If you cannot use one hand you can use two hands.

We will also in this section look at handing over to a second rescuer and you will learn how to deliver continuous chest compressions only. This is done where you are not able to or unwilling to deliver rescue breaths.
