I was so excited when I got the invite to attend a CPR event hosted by FOX last week where we not only got to take a free CPR class, but also got a sneak peek of Season 2 of the shows 9-1-1 and The Resident, both on FOX. Both have amazing actors in them and I couldn’t wait to see what’s coming up! Are you guys already fans of the shows 9-1-1 and The Resident on FOX? I didn’t watch last season when it was airing live, but I’m catching up now and can’t wait to watch the new seasons when 9-1-1 premieres on September 23rd and 24th at 9/8c – a 2-Night Premiere special event – while The Resident premieres on September 24th at 8/7c only on FOX!
We got to watch trailers for both of the new seasons at the event the other night and it looks so good. I love a good drama and suspense show, especially when there are actors I love like Matt Czuchry (the guy who played the boyfriend, Logan, from Gilmore Girls!!!), Jennifer Love Hewitt and Angela Bassett!
Since both shows are emergency type of drama shows, FOX threw an event where we also got to take a CPR class! How cool is that?! I have actually been wanting to take another class since the last one I took was right before Smith was born. I feel like it’s so important as a mama to be able to perform CPR and the Heimlich in case of an unexpected emergency. Of course, none of us ever expects something like that to happen, especially to our kids, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. Not to be a Debbie downer, but did you know that the #1 cause of death in children 1-4 years old is drowning and the #3 is choking? Lives can be saved if you are able to perform CPR before emergency crews arrive on the scene.
The two biggest takeaways from the class that I thought I would share with you are: the ratio for CPR is 30 chest pumps in the middle of the breast area (using one side of your palm if it’s on a toddler) to 2 rescue breaths. And for the Heimlich it is 5 inward/upward compressions in the diaphragm area between the ribs and belly button (*this is toddler age and up; infant choking and CPR is a bit different). I hope none of us ever have to use those skills, but at least we are prepared if so.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and see you back here Monday with another new post!
