The Sharp Hospital Women’s Health Center offers infant and child CPR classes twice a month at a cost of $20 for community members. Intended for parents, grandparents, babysitters, and daycare providers, the course covers life support skills to assist infants and children up to 7 years of age who are choking or experiencing breathing difficulties or heart problems.
Following the American Heart Association curriculum, participants in the course watch a video and then get hands-on CPR practice on a mannequin. Although no test or credential is given, students learn proper techniques through instructor feedback. For more information, visit www.sharp.com.
