EHBO (CPR) Training – Babies & Children

The Client:

Potentially everybody: EHBO certificate (Eerste Hulp Bij Ongeluk), or CPR in English, is a must-have when working for the well-being of others.

The Project:

During this day, we are taught to give first aids to children and babies in various situations:

  • Non breathing baby / child
  • Unconscious baby / child
  • Baby / child whose heart stopped beating
  • Wounded baby / child

I learnt how to do breast compression, mouth-to-mouth respiration and to use an AED (Automatische Externe Deffibrilator). I also learnt to have the good reflexes when a child suffocates or chokes on food, breaks a leg, or an arm or got a nasty open wound.

Skills required:

  • Being able to keep calm whatever the situation
  • Keep thinking clearly and fast: do not panic
  • Always keep up to date with the new CPR methods
