BLS FOR HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS (BLS) - CLASSROOM
The American Heart Association Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers (BLS) is a classroom course that teaches you how to recognize several life-threatening emergencies, provide CPR to adults, infants and children, relieve choking and use an automated external defibrillator (AED).
This course is for healthcare professionals such as nurses, paramedics, dentists, doctors, respiratory therapists, nursing assistants and any one working in a medical setting who needs to know how to perform CPR, as well as other lifesaving skills, in a wide variety of in-hospital and out-of-hospital settings.
To take the BLS Course, each student must have their own provider manual for use before, during and after the class. You must purchase the current provider manual and bring it with you to class. The current provider manual is the 2010 Guidelines. The book can be purchased from a number of places online such as E-bay, Valore books and Amazon. You are free to purchase the book from whomever you choose.
The course includes:
• Key changes in basic life support, reflecting the new science from the 2010 American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care
• Critical concepts of high-quality CPR
• The American Heart Association Chain of Survival
• 1-Rescuer CPR and AED for adult, child and infant

In the classroom, students participate in simulated clinical scenarios and learning stations. Students work with an AHA BLS Instructor to complete BLS skills practice and skills testing. Students also complete a written exam.
