Programs that offer classes which teach child care providers, babysitters, parents, grandparents, teachers and others who supervise children to recognize and care for cardiac and breathing emergencies common to infants and children, usually from birth to age 12. Participants are taught to prioritize care in an emergency involving more than one victim, protect themselves from disease transmission by taking precautions while giving care, clear an airway obstruction in a child who is choking, give rescue breathing and administer care in cardiac emergencies using CPR. Some classes also include basic first aid and/or the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) with infants and children.
