CPR and Children
Do you feel that children between the ages of 8-12 should know how to perform CPR? There has been a recent trend of young children saving the lives of loved ones by performing CPR. Do you see this as a trend to help or potentially be a hazard in the future; meaning do you feel that children this age can perform the proper techniques of CPR?

I feel that this could be very beneficial in the future; however it really plays on if the trainer teaching these young children understand that they are not adults and they take extra steps to ensure that the proper techniques are done. It all depends on technique and follow thru.

I agree John, proper training and techniques are the corner stone to helping eliminate any potential health problems. When children are perfoming these tasks we have to remember that we are putting someone's life in their hands. This is the critical part that needs to really be addressed. Great topic ABF; I think you guys are awesome and love to read your post in the newspaper as well.

I don't think that it's a good idea; too much to chance.

This is a very interesting topic. As I read it, I thought to myself what would I want done in a situation like this. First, I think for me it breaks down to who the child is and how well I know them. I feel that my 11 year old would do an exceptional job with helping in these situations; however I can't guarantee that I would be comfortable with every 11 year old that is trained to perform CPR. It's definitely one of those rules that needs careful thought and consideration. Excellent read and wonderful website. I plan to follow a lot of what is going on with the company in the future. I am based out of Washington (West Coast), I just stumbled upon your site and glad I did. Keep up the good work in your community on the East Coast.
