Basic Life Support (CPR & Use of AED for Healthcare Providers)

Basic Life Support Training

Basic Life Support training (BLS) certification is often specifically geared towards healthcare professionals (though there are plenty of other people who may need to be certified).

Furthermore, BLS certification places a stronger emphasis on working in teams. It will also teach you how to use additional equipment that is much more likely to be found at hospitals, such as bag valve masks (BVM).

It generally refers to the type of care that first-responders, healthcare providers and public safety professionals provide to anyone who is experiencing cardiac arrest, respiratory distress or an obstructed airway. It requires knowledge and skills in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), using automated external defibrillators (AED) and relieving airway obstructions in patients of every age.

It typically offers more in-depth training in CPR and first aid than a layperson CPR course.
