The scary reality is that breathing emergencies like choking are one of the leading causes of injury-related deaths in Canada for children. Plus, children who survive a breathing injury run the possibility of suffering damage to the brain if they go a long period of time without oxygen. Preventing and being prepared for medical emergencies like these is more important than ever due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Children are usually in school or daycare where staff are trained in First Aid but now children are spending more time at home so it is important that you can give them the proper first aid if they ever need it. Our Infant and Child CPR + Choking First Aid course prepares parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, guardians, and caregivers, for the worst, and gives you the best strategies and skills needed for an emergency. In only 1-hour, certified Red Cross First Aid instructors will teach you easy to follow, hands on, practical, and necessary knowledge to keep children and infants safe.
