BLS: Basic Life Support (BLS) is the foundational course for healthcare professionals and trained first responders who provide care to patients in a wide variety of in-facility and prehospital settings. BLS is the cornerstone program for healthcare professionals. As the gold standard, Heart & Stroke’s BLS training courses teach the theoretical and hands-on skills needed to respond to medical emergencies and drives the best possible patient outcomes.
In this course, you will learn the fundamental skills of high-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for victims of all ages. You will practice delivering these skills as a single rescuer and as a member of a multi-rescuer team.
The skills you learn in BLS will enable you to:
- Recognize a cardiac arrest
- Activate the emergency response system early
- Respond quickly and confidently
- Perform high-quality single-rescuer CPR and multi-rescuer team CPR
This course will ensure people in cardiac arrest have the best chance of survival
