Importance of BLS Course

Basic Life Support (BLS) is a primary medical aid provided to a person in an emergency. This procedure can prove to be very helpful when it comes to saving an individual’s life. However, the objective of BLS is not to ‘treat’ the person but to buy some valuable time until the emergency medical aid arrives. BLS course trains aspirants to recognize several life-threatening emergencies quickly, give high-quality chest compressions, deliver appropriate ventilations and provide early use of an AED. This course Reflects science and education from the American Heart Association Guidelines Update for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC).

5. What is CPR ratio?

Give two breaths after every 30 chest compressions. If two people are performing CPR , give one to two breaths after every 15 chest compressions.

6. How do I check my BLS breathing?

When assessing signs of cardiac arrest in an unresponsive patient, check for absent or abnormal breathing by watching the chest for movements for 5 to 10 seconds. Simultaneously check the carotid pulse for a minimum of 5 seconds—but no more than 10 seconds—to determine if there is a pulse present.

7. Do we check for pulse in BLS?

Pulse checks in BLS are not recommended. Rescuers can look for signs of life every 2 minutes / rhythm check if AED prompts you (AED generally has a 2 minute timer between rhythm checks)

12. Does BLS have a pretest?

Taking a BLS pretest is also a great way to familiarize yourself with the format. We've all had that dreadful experience where you've studied the material inside and out, yet struggled on the actual exam because the structure of the questions threw you off.
