I am advocating everyone I know to learn CPR and knowing the importance of lifesaving techniques. Know that there is a difference in types of CPR and that standards have recently changed.
Here are links for CPR which is different for infants up to a year, children, and adult CPR...I didn't remember this and wish I had when we found George.
Infant to age 1-difference is you need to cover their nose and mouth, 2 breaths, 30 compressions while on a HARD surface...if you are alone do 5 cycles before calling 911...if someone is there preform CPR and have them call immediately.
This sight allows you to purchase a video and a practice doll for your whole family and caregivers to learn! It is about $40 and well worth the cost to be educated. Do not just assume a caregiver knows how to do this since most people don't know there is a difference in types of CPR!
Children: cover mouth only, 2 breaths, 5 compressions while on hard surface
NEW Adult: Compressions come FIRST now!
Here is a link for an AED...for those of you who don't know these are vital to survival of a person in cardiac arrest and well worth the money to have one...You CANNOT use them on a child under a year old but it could save someones life if you have one on hand...they are easy to use so don't be intimidated by them...they walk you through how to use them as you use them.

Stocking project is now in full force collecting donations. We have a list of the items we can use. You can also choose to sponsor a stocking in memory or honor of someone else. We will include a paragraph or two in the cards we place in the stockings to let the recipient know about the person that means so much to you.
