Heartsaver® Pediatric First Aid CPR AED (Online Part 1) And Skills Tests
Heartsaver Pediatric First Aid CPR AED (Online Part 1) teaches child care providers and others to respond to and manage illnesses and injuries in a child or infant in the first few minutes until professional help arrives.
It covers the Four Steps of First Aid and pediatric first aid skills such as finding the problem, stopping bleeding, bandaging and using an Epinephrine pen, as well as child CPR AED and infant CPR. Optional modules in adult CPR AED, child mask, infant mask and Asthma Care Training for Child Care Providers are also available.
CPR instruction includes high-quality compressions, airway management, breathing, and how to use a mask.
Once you begin the course, you’ll have access to the online lessons, videos, manuals and resources for 2 years! And you can start and stop the course at your convenience until you have finished it at your own pace.
Successful completion of the full Heartsaver Pediatric First Aid CPR AED Course includes three (3) parts:
