WHEN SHOULD YOU TEACH YOUR CHILD CPR?
The strong need to understand vividly all about CPR skills, technique and training
should be embraced as early as possible. Parent should make up their minds to get
skills and training of CPR across to the youth on time.
According to the research by experts on the CPR discovered that:
Children who are as young as 9 can learn and retain the basics of
cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) even though their physical strength
may pose limits on their effectiveness not with understanding.
Really, young age does not in anyway limit the learning of CRP cognitive skills
any where in the world, but lack of physical strength may prevent such opportunity
to be involved to early.
Today 80% of cardiac arrest court attacks and related emergencies happen when
parent are at home with their off-springs. In such a situation, children who are
skilled in CPR can be the savor. Simply because, CPR is a life saving technique.
Teaching your child CPR teaches them to save a life today or soonest.
News abounds across the nation about how young boys using CPR to save parents,
other children, and people in serious need of help when in comma.
I read the story 12 years old boy from Arizona who had learned CPR in the Boy
Scouts a few years early and was able to save the life of his baseball senior coach
when he fall flat to the ground suddenly in the middle of a game during practice.
Luckily enough, this young lad learned first hand the impact he had on not just this
man’s life, but also the life of his family and friends around. The CPR training spur
the gallant boy to act heroically in a very frightening situation which made other
players to pick race and got some confused of what to be done next.
CPR and life saving training skill stays with you for life. Therefore, teaching a
child about CPR is simply equipping them to face further emergency early enough.
“Be prepared” like the Boy Scout motto. Parents should build their children in
preparation for the future. However, in giving CPR training for your child, make
sure that you engaged the services of certified CPR instructors. It is common
practice these days that knowledge update is encouraged for CPR instructors.
