BLS for Healthcare Providers

  • The American Heart Association (AHA) Basic Life Support (BLS)  for Healthcare Providers is the foundation for saving lives after cardiac arrest. This course teaches both single-rescuer and two-rescuer CPR  for victims of all ages, use of an automated external defibulator (AED) and the relief of choking for both in-facility and prehospital settings. This course is designed for healthcare professionals and other personnel who need to know how to perform CPR and other basic cardiovascular life support skills. Upon successful completion of post-test and skills demonstration, students will receive their AHA Healthcare Provider course completion card which is valid for two years. Course length varies.
Heartsaver

100% classroom training means students are with an AHA Instructor for their entire learning experience. Heartsaver® CPR AED is a video-based, instructor-led course that teaches adult and child CPR and AED use, infant CPR, and how to relieve choking in adults, children, and infants.

First Aid

First Aid can be defined as the emergency treatment of illness or injury in order to maintain life, to ease pain and to prevent deterioration of the patient’s condition until professional medical help can be obtained.

CPR

Short for cardiopulmonary resuscitation. An emergency procedure in which the heart and lungs are made to work bycompressing the chest overlying the heart and forcing air into the lungs. CPR is used to maintain circulation when theheart has stopped pumping on its own.

AED

Automated external defibrillator: A device that automatically analyzes the heart rhythm and that’if it detects a problem that may respond to an electrical shock delivers a shock to restore a normal heart rhythm. Thanks to their small size and ease of use, AEDs have been installed in many settings (such as schools and airports), and serve a role in expanding the number of opportunities for life-saving defibrillation. Abbreviated AED.
