Every healthcare institution understands the importance of the Amercian Heart Association’s BLS certification course for any members of their staff which are involved in saving lives. Basic Life Support (BLS) is the foundation for saving lives after cardiac arrest. Without a clear and concise understanding of the Basic Life Support course, someone in the field certainly cannot manage an emergency or life threatening situation.
Should I take the Course? What will it do for me?
BLS (Basic Life Support) is a type of emergency medical care for those who are suffering from a life threatening condition. A BLS team is usually comprised of a disciplined and experienced medically staff, emergency medical technicians and of course paramedics. The BLS course for health providers is designed to teach the student how to tame the life threatening situation until more advanced medical care becomes available.
AHA BLS courses teach medical techniques relating to various age groups and the best ways to keep that age group alive until they arrive at the hospital or better medical services are available. Receiving BLS certification is a relatively short process. The course itself takes roughly 8-10 hours and is followed by an exam. The course is available in person or online and will teach you how to manage first aid situations like CPR, wound care, burns, fractures, poisoning, choking, head or spinal injuries, heart attack, chest pain, respiratory arrest, seizures, hypoglycemia & more.
Anyone looking to get their career going in the medical emergency field clearly needs this course in their resume. Providing emergency medical attention is no easy task as a persons life is in your hands. However, after taking this course you should have the confidence to behave promptly and efficiently while providing the relevant medical aid without any reluctance. Great training makes you trust yourself and other trust you, so be sure to pick your course instructor wisely.
