Description

CPR for Babies & Children: Basic Life Support Certification

If a human being stops breathing, his or her brain cells will die in 4-6 minutes from the moment of oxygen supply termination to the brain. A child's physiological structure is much more fragile as compared to an adult. This means you have even less time.

Accidents can happen anytime and anywhere without any foretell. In a modern and urban environment, we assume that help is always a phone call away. But how fast can help arrive? Within a minute, 5 minutes or more?

In Malaysia, only 2:23* unconscious patients arriving at casualty had CPR attempted on them. This is because people are still generally 'uneducated' when it comes to CPR. It is vital for a parent to know how to perform CPR so that help can be administered in an emergency or before a transfer to a medical facility.

Educate yourself and save a life. At least, learn the basic steps to perform CPR so that you can help in the event of a cardiac or breathing emergency.

FAQs

Can children attend the workshop?

Our CPR for Babies and Children Workshop is designed for adults only as we want all participants to get the most out of this session. However, we understand that this can be a little tough sometimes. Hence, as a courtesy to other attendees, we seek your kind understanding to excuse yourself and your child should they get restless, agitated or moody (don't worry, we understand - this happens to the best of us!).


I have a helper who is coming along and she will be looking after my child. Is that ok and would I need to purchase an additional ticket for her?

No, you would not need to purchase an additional ticket for your helper if she is there to look after your child(ren) but as a courtesy to other attendees, we hope your helper will excuse herself and your child(ren) should they get restless, agitated or moody.

However, an additional ticket is required if she is attending as a participant.


If you can't find the answer to a question that you have here, please do not hesitate to contact us at hello@mebooks.asia and we'd be happy to look into it.
