Do you know what to do if your child chokes on food or a toy? If this has never happened to your child, you are blessed and lucky. However, if you haven't thought about this scenario or have not had child CPR AED safety training, PLEASE continue reading.
My wife and I were / are foster parents, we have adopted our daughters and we have fostered little ones since 2008. It is the most rewarding thing in our lives. Due to being foster parents through we are required to go through more training than most child care centers or school teachers. Not that I am complaining :), since we are watching over others children, I am glad that we are trained and proficient in many different child safety methods.
This weekend we were at the grandparents house, it was a routine dinner, lots of talking, fun and good family time. We were having some cake for desert, and heard our youngest daughter start to cough and just kept trying to gasp for air. I jumped and picked her up patting her on the back, she is only 2 years old and a little peanut so I was careful not to pat her back too hard. Mom grabbed her patting a little harder as I called 911, she was still gasping for air.
After about 30-45 seconds of patting her back the food was not coming out. We flipped he on her back, I swiped her throat and the food came out as we heard her cry. That was, for a change, the best sound we had ever heard.
Everything happened so fast. Thank God for our training! The paramedics wanted to go ahead and come out, but let me tell you, they would not have made it in time.
If you dont know CPR, or Child safety including Infant, Child CPR (they are very different), Pediatric First Aid and AED (Automated External Defibrillator) contact someone now, dont wait. If we had not had the training we do, we might have lost our little girl this past weekend.
I know we are all busy and if we were not foster parents, we probably would not have had this training. I think I would have still known how to swip the throat, but knowing what I know of CPR for infants and children helped all of us stay calm in a very paniced situation.
If you have children in your house, go get training. It takes about an hour and could save your childs life one day, or yours.
