Event description

Description

This hands-on course through the American Heart Association is designed to “reinforce healthcare professionals’ understanding of the importance of early CPR and defibrillation, basic steps of performing CPR, relieving choking, and using an AED; and the role of each link in the Chain of Survival.” In this instructor-led BLS course, students will learn to rapidly recognize and respond to several life-threatening emergencies. Instructors will observe their technique and provide feedback, and students will need to complete a multiple choice exam in order to receive their certification.

Course Content (From the AHA):

  • High-quality CPR for adults, children, and infants

  • The AHA Chain of Survival, specifically the BLS components

  • Use of an AED

  • Effective ventilations using a barrier device

  • Importance of teams in multirescuer resuscitation and performance as an effective team member during multirescuer CPR

  • Relief of foreign-body airway obstruction (choking) for adults and infants

Note: This is for undergraduate UCLA students only. This course is recommended for students who will be working in a healthcare environment. This course may not be taken to fulfill an EMT requirement for UCLA EMS.
