Basic Life Support, CPR for Healthcare Providers

The American Heart Association BLS for Healthcare Providers course is designed to teach the skills of CPR for victims of all ages (including ventilation with barrier device, a bag-valve-mask device, and oxygen), use of an automated external defibrillator (AED), and relief of foreign-body airway obstruction. It is intended for participants who provide health care to patients in a wide variety of settings, including in-hospital and out-of-hospital settings. These healthcare providers may include (but are not limited to) physicians, nurses, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, respiratory therapists, physical and occupational therapists, physician assistants, and other allied health personnel. Students who successfully complete this program will receive certification from the American Heart Association.
