COURSE OUTLINE

Basic Life Support (BLS) is the foundation for saving lives after cardiac arrest. It is designed for first responders who provide care to patients in a wide variety of settings and teaches both single-rescuer and team basic life support skills for application in pre-hospital and in-facility settings. This course trains participants to promptly recognize several life-threatening emergencies, give high-quality chest compressions, deliver appropriate ventilations, and provide early use of an AED. It includes adult, child, and infant rescue techniques. The BLS course includes realistic scenarios, simulations and incorporates criteria from the Heart and Stroke Foundation:

  • Steps of the Chain of Survival and applying the BLS concepts of the Chain of Survival
  • Recognize the signs of someone needing CPR
  • Perform high-quality CPR for adults, children and infants
  • Importance of early defibrillation and use of an AED
  • Use of a barrier device to provide effective ventilations
  • Importance of teams in multi-rescuer resuscitation and performing as an effective team member
  • Technique for relief of foreign-body airway obstruction (choking) in adults, children and infants
