Yes, and if you should ever have to perform CPR on babies or children under seven years of age you just use two fingers to push instead of the palms of the hand.

Some people still will use blowing oxygen into the lungs of the victim (they have recently changed this) and if you should still follow this rule then it's important to give gentle puffs of oxygen and not the more powerful ones given to adults.

Children's hearts can race faster, temperatures can run higher and their breathing can be either rapid or low depending on the child.

Do different age groups have different heart rates?

Yes. Children have much higher heart rates than teenagers or adults. As a rule of thumb, in teens and adults a heart rate of 100 is considered tachycardia (an abnormal finding), while in children it is considered normal. Also the maximum heart rate is different in different ages. A good shortcut for this is 220 - age. So a person who is 20 would have a maximum heart rate of 200, while a person who is 30 would have a maximum heart rate of 190.
