CPR for Children (Ages 1-8 Years)

CPR for children is similar to performing Quick CPR for adults. There are, however, four differences.

1) If you are alone with the child give one minute of CPR before calling 911.

2) Use the heel of one hand for chest compressions.

3) Press the sternum down 1-1 1/2 inches.

4) Give 1 full breath followed by 5 chest compressions.
