How To Perform CPR on Infants

Do you know how to perform infant CPR?

Previously, we shared with you two videos on how to respond to a cardiac arrest in adults and children. Today, our DARE Programme Director, Dr Jade Kua, will share with you some easy steps to remember when you witness an infant who suffers from a sudden cardiac arrest and collapse. We would like to highlight that for child and infant CPR, it’s best to attend a practical class as the steps may be tricky to master.

Please share this video with your family and friends so that they can follow us and learn how to save a life. For more information as well as an AED locator, download our free DARE- LEARN APP now.

DARE to save a life with new app

The DARE team made their presence felt on 26 May 2018 at the Toa Payoh Hub when they set up a roadshow to educate members of the public on what they can do in a cardiac arrest situation.

The carnival was graced by the Guest of Honour Mr Amrin Amin, Senior Parliamentary Secretary for Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of Health. It saw the launch of the DARE app, an educational tool to equip users with knowledge on CPR+AED. The public also had the opportunity to try first hand on delivering chest compressions on a manikin.

Anatomy of A Letter

Super excited to have my letter about CPR education published in the Straits Times Forum page yesterday https://www.straitstimes.com/forum/letters-in-print/teaching-the-masses-cpr and thought I would break it down and explain what that was all about.
