BLS : Basic Life Support Course

BLS course is designed as per the criteria of American Heart Association. It trains the participants to promptly recognize several life-threatening emergencies, give high-quality chest compressions, deliver appropriate ventilations and provide early use of an AED. Reflects science and education from the American Heart Association Guidelines Update for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC).

Who should take this course?

The AHA’s BLS Course is designed for healthcare professionals and 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 prehospital settings.

The BLS certification course and training commences with a brief introduction of what basic life support entails. It also provides insight on the legal protections in place for each state in regards to rescuers who provide medical assistance to unknown parties.

As per the Good Samaritan Law, for example, health experts who administer medical techniques, such as CPR or AED to save lives are usually protected against negative legal proceedings when no compensation is expected. This is a clear example of the value of studying a standard BLS course, even if you’re not required to. The course provides profound instruction for medical workers that often use BLS on the field in the real world.

What’s included?

The BLS course goes into great detail about common BLS processes. There are a total of 13 modules, including:

CPR – Learn how to perform CPR on infants, children, and adults. Determine the best course of action to take based on underlying circumstances and if and when CPR should be ceased at any given time. The BLS course further discusses the benefits of combining CPR with AED when properly trained rescuers are present and the right equipment is available.

CPR Modules – Address how team resuscitation differs from single-player CPR scenarios. You will also learn about carrying out chest compressions on different demographics, including pregnant women and obese patients. Students will also learn how to clear the airway, improve circulation, and complete mouth-to-mouth rescue breathing if needed.

AED – Next up on the list of BLS training materials is how and when to use an Automated External Defibrillator or AED. In most cases, this is used after CPR is completed. Students also get a chance to study specific conditions that respond more favorably to AED use, including Ventricular Tachycardia, where a rapid heartbeat is observed. Ventricular Fibrillation is another condition that health care students will learn about during the standard BLS course and training. The AED module furthermore covers additional steps to take for using an automated external defibrillator in special circumstances, such as in cases of trauma, drowning, or electrocution. In cases of Ventricular Fibrillation, it’s essential to get medical intervention as no treatment will result in the loss of blood circulation, and ultimately, the loss of oxygen.

Choking - Adult Pediatric and Infant choking relieving techniques will be taught in detail.
