BLS for Healthcare Providers Course
Advanced level of CPR training for individuals who have a job-related "duty to respond" to emergencies. The 4.5-hour course includes an overview of body systems and medical/legal issues. Participants learn how to recognize and provide care in respiratory and cardiac emergencies for adults, children, and infants, with special emphasis on two-rescuer CPR use of the resuscitation mask, bag-valve-mask, and Automated External Defibrillator. Techniques for minimizing the risk of disease transmission and for special resuscitation situations are included. This course is especially recommended for medical professionals, lifeguards, aerobics/fitness/sports instructors, and public and private safety/security employees. This American Heart Association certificate is valid for 2 years. A written and practical test must be completed.
This course teaches CPR and relief of foreign-body airway obstruction (FBAO) to all lay rescuers, particularly those who are expected to respond to emergencies in the workplace or home. This course is specifically designed for those participants who require a course completion card - a certification - documenting completion of a CPR course. This course may be modified to meet your particular needs. The CPR course promotes widespread training in CPR in the workplace and home at a low cost. Because the course is primarily for laypersons that are expected to provide CPR in the workplace, the course teaches mouth-to-mouth ventilation and rescue breathing using barrier devices that are typically used for CPR. This course can also train laypersons to serve as rescuers in the community but is primarily designed for participants who are required to attend a CPR course for the workplace. A course completion card (certification) is provided to participants after successful completion of the course. No written test required.
