The majority of cardiorespiratory arrests in children and infants are caused by respiratory insufficiency rather than cardiac problems; therefore, the order of delivering resuscitation is different to the delivery of basic life support to adults. The Nursing and Midwifery Council has stated that all nurses must be able to provide basic life support. This article will explain the process for recognising the need for, and delivering, basic life support to infants and children.
