Adult Cpr Vs. Kids Cpr

CPR technique is similar in both children and adults, says Dr. Zulma Berrios, Chief Medical Officer at West Kendall Baptist Hospital. In the case of little kids, explains the specialist, two fingers can be used and in bigger kids one or the two hands can be used. The important things are pushing the blood out of the heart and continuing with the circulation. Meric Tendrich, co-owner Little Swimmers, also says CPR can be used in other cases, such as heart attack.
