Basic Life Support (BLS) Course

WHY YOU SHOULD LEARN CPR?

Anyone can learn CPR - and everyone should! Most people who experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public location die because they don't receive immediate CPR from someone on the scene. As a bystander, don't be afraid. Your actions can only help. If you don't know CPR, perhaps it's time to learn.

Performing CPR will require some extent of physical exertion. Therefore, this event may not be suitable for:

  • Women in late stage of pregnancy
  • Those with back, arm or knee injuries that will hinder one from kneeling or performing chest compressions

 

 

 

Basic Difference between ACLS and BLS: Both posses the same objective - learning the proper techniques to aid in saving the life of someone in cardiac arrest. BLS is intended for medical professionals and laypersons - anyone who needs to know the basic principles of CPR, AED usage and other primary methods of lifesaving skills; whilst ACLS is designed specifically for healthcare professionals. BLS is often performed in out-of-hospital situations, and may not always be performed by a healthcare professional.
It is common for ACLS participants to have completed a BLS Certification prior to beginning their ACLS course - and ACLS Certification courses often include a review of BLS course material. AT THIS STAGE WE DO NOT CONDUCT ACLS COURSE.
