Basic Life Support (BLS) is a level of first-aid resuscitation that can be used in emergency situations until victims are placed into the care of medical professionals. Techniques used to support BLS can be used when victims appear to be choking, drowning, unconscious or suffering from cardiac arrest. Knowing the proper steps for providing Basic Life Support could mean the difference between life and death.
This type of medical training is essential for medical professionals, and is usually required for those with jobs as teachers, daycare providers, social workers and security guards. However, with nearly 50% of heart attack deaths occurring outside of a hospital every year, it is up to a bystander to know when it’s appropriate to perform BLS, thus making it extremely important that they have knowledge of what skills are needed to be performed.
Advanced Medical Certification offers courses with certification/recertification for Basic Life Support training. And while it is mandatory that every medical professional obtain certification in BLS training, it benefits everyone to learn. Make sure you are educated and able to save a life when called upon.
