What do we teach?

Compressions-Only CPR for Kids

Compressions-Only Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (or CO-CPR) is a form of CPR that does not require you to breathe into another person's mouth. This makes it an easier form of CPR for anyone, especially children, to learn.

.

And, for adults and teenagers, CO-CPR works just as well as regular CPR. In fact, some studies say that because you aren't stopping the heart compressions to breathe into a person's mouth, CO-CPR might be even more effective than regular CPR at keeping oxygen-rich blood moving to the brain!

.

Once you've learned how to save a life with CO-CPR, you too will be a member of The Junior Heart Squad!

Why teach kids CO-CPR?

Most people have no idea what to do when there is a cardiac emergency, particularly when someone's heart stops beating and they are not breathing. The American Heart Association™ reports that 88 percent of heart attacks or cardiac arrests occur at home, and quite often there is a child present when it happens.

.

Learning CO-CPR will help your son/daughter know what to do if an adult or teenager collapses and isn't breathing. And knowing what to do will help them stay calm, do a great job and potentially save someone's life!

(For infants, toddlers and non-teenage children, the standard form of CPR is still necessary)
