The stereotypical sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) victim is an elderly male patient with existing health concerns. And, indeed, that is an accurate depiction of the average victim of SCA. However, the scope of victims can also include people of any gender and age – including infants. So, when it comes to training for high-quality CPR, why are infants often neglected?

Why You Need QCPR Technology in Infant CPR Training
Annually, more than 7,000 children suffer an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.1 And, research suggests that infants have a higher risk of SCA than older children.2 The need for quality CPR becomes critical when training:
- New parents
- Day care providers
- Neighbors and friends
High-quality, infant CPR training can also make a positive impact when incorporated into team training exercises for healthcare professionals.
QCPR technology provides instructors and learners with instant feedback on key metrics including:
- Chest compression depth
- Chest compression rate
- Chest compression recoil
- Chest compression fraction
- Ventilation rate and volume
- Hand placement
As learners practice, they can measure their performance in real-time and make immediate corrections to their hands-on skills.
