Is CPR done the same way on adults and children?
The core principles of CPR apply equally to children and adults.
Many children do not receive CPR because potential rescuers are not sure if there are specific methods recommended for children, and are afraid of causing harm. It is far better to use the adult CPR sequence for resuscitation of a child than to do nothing.
Although slightly different techniques (15:2) are taught to those people who have special responsibilities for the care of children, the differences are not crucial and it is far more important to do something using the techniques you have been taught.
