Thought this link would be useful as well, as it shows videos for choking, burns, CPR etc. There is also a quiz you can take.

Thank you for this x

I personally feel that all parents should be sent on a baby/infact/child first aid course funded by the governement, could save a lot of lives x

Also agree with LeeLee would be great if this was made a sticky x

Thank you for this. I learnt this in first aid but it's good to be reminded. Would definitely be a good sticky.

I just wanted to add, that if you're uncomfortable (it's not your child/a stranger) or unsure about doing breaths, that chest compressions done right can be/are just as effective in moving air in and out of the lungs.

I just recently did a first aid course and they recommended you can just do compressions (adult or child/infant) if that's what you're comfortable with.

It's also interesting to note the differences between the US & UK first aid for CPR. I was taught to do 5 initial cycles of 30 compressions/2 breaths before pausing to evaluate and/or call emergency services if you haven't had someone else call for you as that's how long it takes for the blood to do a full cycle.
