On the night of February 20th, the entire staff of Legacy Pediatrics took a CPR refresher course. Geordie Kuehler, who is affiliated with the American Heart Association, was kind enough to teach the 3 hour class in our waiting room. We were updated on adult, child, and infant CPR technique as well as AED usage.
How long has it been since you took a CPR course? Or maybe you never have? It’s a great skill to have, especially with children. Parents who have a pool should also be certified in the case of accidental drowning. Here are some links to classes in our area:
