This research will be a prospective, cohort study to determine if mothers of infants/newborns are more willing to complete CPR training using a 22-minute instructional DVD and infant manikin versus traditional four hour didactic instruction.
Study Hypothesis: A 22-minute instructional DVD and infant manikin will be an effective and preferred tool for teaching mothers of infants infant CPR.
- To determine if mothers of infants are more likely to complete infant CPR training with a 22-minute instructional DVD and infant manikin, than by attending a traditional CPR class.
- To determine if learning infant CPR with a 22-minute instructional DVD and infant manikin is as effective as attending traditional infant CPR class.
- To examine the number of mothers that were offered the opportunity to learn infant CPR either as part of their prenatal classes, or upon the birth of their infant.
- To examine the number of mothers who have been previously trained in CPR.
- To examine the reasons that mothers have been previously trained in CPR (e.g., mandated by work/career vs. personal reasons).
- To examine the multiplier effect of an at home CPR education using a 22-minute instructional DVD and infant manikin at the time of the follow up phone call.
