    How to Perform Child and Baby CPR

    Learn how to perform child and baby CPR. With a few simple steps, you can help save a life – and help a family in need.

    Child & Baby CPR

    Although you hope you'll never use cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for a child or infant, it's important to know the steps so that you can help in the event of a cardiac or breathing emergency. And although you may have taken a class in child CPR, it's a good idea to keep the steps handy so that the information stays fresh in your memory. With our printable step-by-step guide, you can access the child and baby CPR steps anytime, anywhere. Simply print them up and place them in your car, your desk, your kitchen or with your other first aid supplies, then read over them from time to time to help maintain your skills.

    Before Giving Child or Baby CPR

    1

    Check the scene for safety, form an initial impression, obtain consent from the parent or guardian, and use personal protective equipment (PPE)

    2

    If the child or baby appears unresponsive, check the child or baby for responsiveness (shout-tap-shout)

    For a child, shout to get the child’s attention, using the child’s name if you know it. If the child does not respond, tap the child’s shoulder and shout again while checking for breathing, life-threatening bleeding or another obvious life-threatening condition

    For a baby, shout to get the baby’s attention, using the baby’s name if you know it. If the baby does not respond, tap the bottom of the baby’s foot and shout again while checking for breathing, life-threatening bleeding or another obvious life-threatening condition

    Check for no more than 10 seconds

    3

    If the child or baby does not respond and is not breathing or only gasping, CALL 9-1-1 and get equipment, or tell someone to do so

    Performing Child & Baby CPR

    1

    Place the child or baby on their back on a firm, flat surface

    For a child, kneel beside the child

    For a baby, stand or kneel to the side of the baby, with your hips at a slight angle

    2

    Give 30 compressions

    For a child, place the heel of one hand in the center of the child’s chest, with your other hand on top and your fingers interlaced and off the child’s chest

    Position your shoulders directly over your hands and lock your elbows

    Keep your arms straight

    Push down hard and fast about 2 inches at a rate of 100 to 120 per minute

    Allow the chest to return to normal position after each compression

    For a small child, use a one-handed CPR technique

    Place the heel of one hand in the center of the child’s chest

    Push down hard and fast about 2 inches at a rate of 100 to 120 per minute

    For a baby, place both thumbs (side-by-side) on the center of the baby’s chest, just below the nipple line

    Use the other fingers to encircle the baby’s chest toward the back, providing support

    Using both thumbs at the same time, push hard down and fast about 1 ½ inches at a rate of 100 to 120 per minute

    Allow the chest to return to its normal position after each compression

    Alternatively, for a baby, use the two-finger technique

    Use two fingers placed parallel to the chest in the center of the chest

    For a baby, if you can’t reach the depth of 1 ½ inches, consider using the one-hand technique

    3 Give 2 breaths

    For a child, open the airway to a slightly past-neutral position using the head-tilt/chin-lift technique

    For a baby, open the airway to a neutral position using the head-tilt/chin-lift technique

    Blow into the child or baby’s mouth for about 1 second

    Ensure each breath makes the chest rise

    Allow the air to exit before giving the next breath

    If the first breath does not cause the chest to rise, retilt the head and ensure a proper seal before giving the second breath. If the second breath does not make the chest rise, an object may be blocking the airway

    4

    Continue giving sets of 30 chest compressions and 2 breaths until:

    You notice an obvious sign of life

    An AED is ready to use

    Another trained responder is available to take over compressions

    EMS personnel arrive and begin their care

    You are alone and too tired to continue

    The scene becomes unsafe

    You have performed approximately 2 minutes of CPR (5 sets of 30:2), you are alone and caring for baby, and you need to call 9-1-1

    Be prepared for moments that matter by taking a CPR class and you could help save a life.

    CPR & AED Use For Infants

    Infants more often have a breathing problem than an actual heart problem. Prevention of choking in infants is crucial.

    Infant CPR and Choking

    Playlist includes 7 training videos

    Infants more often have a breathing problem than an actual heart problem. Prevention of choking in infants is crucial.

    It is important to begin CPR immediately and perform two minutes of CPR before going to get additional help.

    If someone else is available, send them to call 911/EMS and to find an AED. One set of CPR consists of 30 compressions and two breaths for one provider or 15 compressions and two breaths for two providers. When the second rescuer returns, have them follow the AED prompts, apply AED pads and help with CPR.

    If the infant is unresponsive and not breathing or only gasping for air, provide CPR.

    When giving CPR to an infant victim, do the following:

    Make sure the scene and area around the infant are safe.

    Tap and shout to determine if the infant is unresponsive.

    Yell for help. If a second person is available have them call 911/EMS and get an AED.

    Check breathing.

    If not responding and not breathing or only gasping, then give two minutes of 30 compressions and two breaths for one provider or 15 compressions and two breaths for two providers.

    Call 911/EMS if a second person has not already done so.

    Resume CPR and give compressions and breaths.

    Infant CPR (0 to 12 Months)

    CPR for children and infants is almost identical. An infant that does nothing when you tap or talk loudly is considered unresponsive and CPR needs to be given.

    As a rescuer, if you are untrained in CPR, then give the “hands-only” CPR. The “hands-only” CPR is when you give continuous compressions but no breaths.

    Figure 25

    COMPRESSIONS

    Push hard and fast as you would in a child or adult receiving CPR. Position the infant on a firm, hard surface to make giving CPR easier.

    To give an infant CPR, do the following:

    Position the infant on their back on a firm, hard surface (Figure 25a).

    Move any bulky clothing away from the chest (Figure 25b).

    Place two fingers of one hand on the breastbone right below the nipple line (Figure 25c).

    Push straight down approximately 1.5 inches (4 cm) at a rate of 100 to 120 beats per minute.

    Let the chest recoil to its normal position after every compression.

    Performing compressions correctly is essential to effective CPR and can be physically tiring. If someone else can help, switch off every two minutes while minimizing interruptions during compressions.

    GIVING BREATHS

    Giving breaths during CPR can help infants. Like children, many cases of cardiac arrest in infants are primarily due to respiratory problems. Giving breaths and administering chest compressions are important for infants receiving CPR. A good breath will cause the chest to rise.

    To open the person’s airway, do the following:

    Put one hand on their forehead.

    Place your fingers on the bony part of their chin.

    Gently tilt the head back while lifting the chin.

    Figure 26

    Be careful not to tilt the head too far back as this can block the airway. Be sure to press on the bony part of the chin and not the soft part under the chin as pressing the soft part may also block the airway.

    Once you’ve opened the infant’s airway, you are ready to give breaths.

    Next, do the following:

    Hold the airway open as described above by gently pressing forehead back and lifting chin with your fingers (Figure 26a).

    Take a deep breath and seal your mouth around the infant’s mouth and nose (Figure 26b).

    Blow for one second and watch the chest rise (Figure 26c). Very little volume or force is required to inflate an infant’s lungs. Blowing too much or too hard will damage the infant’s lungs. Only a gentle exhale for a tiny puff of air is required for an infant.

    Repeat for a second breath.

    If you are unable to cover both mouth and nose entirely with your mouth, use the following method for rescue breathing:

    Open the airway using the head-tilt/ chin-lift maneuver.

    Pinch the infant’s nose closed. Create a seal using your lips to surround the infant’s mouth.

    If the chest does not rise after the first breath, let the head go back to normal position and then re-open the airway by tilting the head and lifting the chin. Try to get a breath in while watching for chest rise. Do not interrupt compressions for any more than 10 seconds when giving breaths.

    Figure 27

    MASK USE

    Giving breaths in CPR is generally safe for the rescuer. However, if a mask is available, it should be used. The mask fits over the infant’s mouth and nose. Many masks have a pointed or tapered end which should go over the bridge of the infant’s nose. Make sure the mask fits properly; if it is too large, a proper seal cannot be obtained and efforts to deliver breaths will be ineffective.

    When using a mask to give breaths, do the following:

    Place the mask over the infant’s mouth and nose (Figure 27a).

    Open their airway by performing the head-tilt/chin-lift maneuver.

    Ensure a good seal between the mask and the face. (Figure 27b)

    Give a breath for over one second and watch the chest rise. (Figure 26c)

    Activating 911/EMS

    Always make sure the scene is safe when approaching an infant. If you become injured or disabled, it will only make the situation worse.

    Tap the infant and talk loudly to determine if they are unresponsive. If they fail to make any response or reaction, they are considered unresponsive. An unresponsive infant will not move when you touch them. They will not cry or make any sounds, and their body will be limp.
