The Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Providers (HCP) Course is an instructor-led course that teaches both single-rescuer and team basic life support. 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. BLS for Healthcare Providers teaches skills using the American Heart Association’s proven Practice-While-Watching technique, which allows instructors to observe students, provide feedback and guide students’ acquisition of skills.
Key changes reflecting the new science from the 2015 American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care:
Adult, children and infant CPR and AED use
Team Dynamics during multi-rescuer resuscitation attempts
Use of Naloxone during Opioid-Induced Cardiac Arrest
Students must purchase and read the BLS for Healthcare Providers Student Manual before attending this course. Students also receive the new Pocket Reference Card with the manual designed to provide quick emergency information to the rescuer at any time.
