  2. The basics of CPR are the same for everyone, but there are a few specific differences for adult CPR, child CPR, and infant CPR. For example, the technique of infant CPR is slightly different than CPR for adults and children as, instead using both hands, you must place two fingertips of one hand in the center of the chest. It also differs slightly as, instead of merely covering the victim’s mouth, you must cover the young victim's mouth and nose with your own?
