American Heart Association Basic Life Support (BLS)
The Basic Life Support (BLS) Provider Course is designed for healthcare providers who work with medical or clinically involved patients and clients and either direct or participate in the resuscitation of a patient, whether in or out of hospital. The goal of the BLS Provider Course is to improve the quality of care provided to the adult victim of a cardiac arrest or other cardiopulmonary emergency. You will enhance your skills in the treatment of arrest and pre-arrest patients through active participation in a series of simulated cardiac and respiratory cases. These simulations are designed to reinforce important concepts, including skills for the adult, child and infant:
Basic Life Support (BLS) Automated External Defibrillator CPR/BLS Includes one and two person CPR and AED skills for adult, child, and infant, foreign body airway maneuver, for conscious and unconscious adult, child, and infant.
Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS)
Builds on the foundation of Basic Life Support (BLS), emphasizing the importance of continuous, high-quality CPR. The hands-on instruction and simulated cases in this advanced course are designed to help enhance their skills in the recognition and intervention of cardiopulmonary arrest, immediate post-cardiac arrest, acute arrhythmia, stroke, and acute coronary syndromes.
