BLS or basic life support is a level of medical care which is used for individuals with life-threatening illnesses or injuries until they can be given full medical care by advanced life support providers.
The BLS course is designed and required for current healthcare providers like nurses, EMTs, first responders, and other healthcare practitioners. It’s also designed for those who are currently undergoing medical training. The American Heart Association BLS course teaches one and two-person CPR/AED skills for adults, children, and infants while using various breathing barrier devices. Like the HeartSaver course, it also includes learning the use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).
Course length: 4.5 hours
