The Benefits of First Aid and CPR

First aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training are important in ensuring your child's welfare. Providers, childcare givers and first-time parents face endless responsibilities and learning basic first aid techniques, CPR and the Heimlich maneuver can help save your child's life in an emergency.

First aid training for infants and young children is different than it is for adults because young children, especially infants, often cannot express when something is wrong with them. Infant-care first aid can instruct childcare-givers on what signs to look for and how exactly to respond.

In a step to provide reassurance, confidence and security, GPM Pediatrics is proud to announce a monthly program, held by Baby Be Safe, offering first aid and CPR classes in our Brooklyn location at a cost of $65 for non-certification and $75 for certification (classes are for existing patients ONLY). If you are interested in registering for a class, please contact our front desk at (718) 833-2300.
