Every parent should know how and when to administer CPR. When performed correctly, CPR can save a child’s life by restoring blood flow to the heart, brain, and other organs and restoring breathing until advanced life support can be given by health care providers. If CPR is needed, using the correct technique will give someone the best chance of survival.
CPR might be necessary in many different emergencies, including accidents, near-drowning, suffocation, poisoning, smoke inhalation, electrocution injuries, and suspected sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).

CPR (or cardiopulmonary resuscitation) is a combination of chest compressions and rescue breathing (mouth-to-mouth resuscitation). If someone isn’t circulating blood or breathing adequately, CPR can restore circulation of oxygen-rich blood to the brain. Without oxygen, permanent brain damage or death can occur in less than 8 minutes.
