Â Â Â Â The American Red Cross will hold a CPR/AED Child and Infant class on Tuesday, May 18, from 5:30pm to 10:30pm at the Oswego branch office located at 333 West First Street in Oswego. This is a great opportunity for who is responsible for the oversight and care for children and infants, whether itâ€™s at work, within the family, or in a neighborhood setting
Â Â Â Â Â Participants will get the opportunity to learn how to recognize and respond to an emergency, when and how to move a child or infant from a dangerous scene and how to check a conscious child or infant for life-threatening and non-life-threatening conditions. Skills and training like how to care for a child or infant who is choking and being able to identify when and how to use an AED on a child will also be taught throughout class. Upon completion participants will be able to overcome any reluctance to act in emergency situations and to recognize and care for life-threatening respiratory or cardiac emergencies in children and infants.
