CPR

I am trained in CPR (adult) as my last job required it, but not infant CPR.  I want to take a course but several people said doing that will jinx things.  What are your guys opinion? How many of you are trained in infant CPR? TIA.

Re: CPR

  • I am a RN an I do not think being trained in infant CPR will jinx anything. I think it is best to be trained and prepared since it is different than adult. I am infant CPR certified and glad that I am although I hope I never have to use it

  • It's better to be trained than not to be.

  • I do not understand that logic. Better not get my kids health insurance! It will jinx them into getting sick or hurt.

  • Infant CPR was a requirement of both parents before we could bring LO home from the NICU.

    Yup!!  Us too.  We were tested before discharge and sent home with a DVD and an infant CPR dummy for practice.

  • My DH and I took adult, child, and infant CPR back in June. Better to be safe than sorry.

  • I'd rather know infant CPR and risk "jinxing" things than not know it and need it.

    Are you really real?

  • I question you because my dumb dog has more common sense than you seem to have.

     

    Why in the world would you think that knowing life saving skills could jinx anything?  I've known CPR for 14 years and I've never had to use it.

    Does this mean you'll never teach your kid how to dial 911?  Because it might jinx something?

    Out of sheer curiosity, what is the highest level of education you have completed?  This seriously may help me understand some things about you.

  • Your so into the insults even your pets aren't safe. If your miserable which I know you are Vent somewhere else. Typical self centered  individual stating 14 years of cpr I'm glad you learned it 14 years ago and shared that part of it. Unlike your helpless dog  I wouldn't be caught dead in the same room as you. So unfortunate I'm stuck with narcissistic individuals like you from cyber hell. Keep reading my posts I'm glad you can't get enough of me. Can't wait for the crappy comeback...

  • Look...we question you because some of the things you say don't make any sense.

    Stop and think about what you just said. We are reading this post as "I don't want to learn CPR which could one day save my child's life because it might make something bad happen."

    Now-- does that sound ridiculous? Yeah...that is why we are questioning you.

  • Get trained!  You need to know what to do.  I actually used my training last Christmas when a baby stopped breathing when we were at IHOP.

    I took my first training before I started babysitting as a youngster and have kept it up ever since.

    Just think, the more people that are trained, the better for all of us.

    you could have simply answered the question instead of wasting your time trying to offend me. Your insults are like a 5 year old's. "I'm telling my mommy!"

    Seriously.  This question doesn't even seem worth posting.  I opened this thread the first time, wondered WTH kind of reaction you were after, and closed it again.  

    If you are being serious, then I'm concerned that you need Internet strangers to guide this type of decision.
