The American Heart Association’s Basic Life Support (BLS) course prepares Healthcare Professionals to recognize and respond to life-threatening emergency situations, give high-quality chest compressions (CPR), deliver appropriate ventilations and provide early use of an AED promptly until the patient can be given complete medical care at a hospital.
The course provides a foundation for saving lives after cardiac arrest.
Healthcare professionals, EMS providers, and any other personnel who need to know how to perform CPR and other basic cardiovascular life support skills in a wide variety of in-facility and pre-hospital settings.
On completion of the course, the participant would be capable of recognizing cardiac arrest, activating the emergency system early and responding quickly and confidently.
The knowledge and skills learned in this course will equip you to give victims the best chance of survival.
The AHA’s BLS course is delivered by highly experienced emergency physicians, intensivists and doctors who are certified instructors of the American Heart Association.
They deliver both the cognitive portion of training and the psychomotor component of thorough skills practice and testing in a classroom setting using simulated situations and state of the art equipment.
