Last week, I took part in CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) training. Ever since I had my daughter, I always wanted to learn just in case.
The training was very informative. I learned the difference between a heart attack (blockage) and a cardiac arrest (heart stop) and what to look out for.
I practiced compressions and rescue breaths on an adult and child dummy. I learned how to administer a shock from an AED (automated external defibrillator). I also practiced the Heimlich maneuver on an adult and techniques to help an infant choking.
I recommend the training to anyone. If you see it offered somewhere, take the class. You never know when you might need it!
