Paediatric CPR Ratio

Further to a significant amount of queries regarding the correct ratio of chest compressions to rescue breaths for children and babies that should be taught on standard or paediatric first aid courses, our awarding body Qualsafe can confirm that this is 30:2.

To clarify this position, please find below a link to the frequently asked questions on the Resuscitation Council (UK) website. Both questions 3 and 4 clarify that 30:2 is the correct ratio for virtually all who attend standard or paediatric first aid training.
