This past Sat. Alicia N., Anna N., Betsy, Hannah and I had the opportunity to take a First Aid/CPR and AED class at the Red Cross. It was a very fun and memorable occasion!
First we started out with the infant/child CPR. We got to practice on each other first before using the dummies. Check, Call, Care, are the three steps that you go through.
::Saving a baby's life::
Anna giving "back blows" (she was pretty good at that) *smile*
Betsy checking for "signs of life" on the little dummy
Alicia, giving "rescue breathing" to a "child" Doing CPR: )
The First Aid part of the class was very helpful. We learned how to help people with; hypothermia, heat strokes, burns, punctures...the list goes on.
So now if you have an ailment of any kind you know where to go: )
