CPR Course - Infant (12 of 14)        
    To perform CPR, remember the basic steps of CPR administration called CAB
for compressions, for airway, and for breathing


         
                 
             
   

1.  As with adult and child, place the infant on his/her back on a firm surface.

2.  Kneel next to the infant's neck and shoulders.  To open the airway, place your palm on the forehead to carefully tilt the head back and lift the chin forward with your other hand. 

3.  Proceed to Breathing

Important: As with adult, gasping for air is not considered normal breathing, so you should proceed with CPR immediately. If the child starts breathing, roll him/her onto his or her side, and wait for emergency personnel to arrive.
