Pediatric CPR is a Specialty

Pediatric CPR was developed because a child's body is not the same as an adult's. In fact, adult CPR could cause additional injury to a child.

You will learn how hand positions on a tiny infant differ from those used on the toddler and school age child. Further, since children in different stages of growth have different heart rates, you will learn to match your CPR compression rate with the injured child's heartbeat.
