Child and Infant CPR

Yesterday Amy and I took a full-day course in Child and Infant CPR from St. John Ambulance. It was pretty interesting, and covered a wide range of topics, since they had to cover the core First Aid topics as well as the more small-person-specific stuff. It seemed to boil down to a couple of simple steps to follow for pretty much any sort of emergency. First, make sure it's safe. Second, send someone for medical help (911). Third, make sure they're breathing. Fourth, make sure they're not bleeding. The instructor had a lot of good stories, and seemed to know her stuff fairly well, which made it easier to learn from her, I think. And I am very glad that I learned the stuff, even though I hope I'll never have to use it.
