Santa Clara, California BLS Classes
Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare providers is required certification for almost everyone in any medical role. For dentists, nurses and doctors, BLS (usually with an American Heart Association certification) is essential. It is one of the most fundamental certification requirements legally required to work in both clinical and field settings, but it is also a skill that everybody should master.
Sometimes healthcare providers forget the basic but critical set of skills over time. From medical assistants to heart surgeons, everybody should have a strong competency in basic life-saving CPR and the use of AEDs.
What is CPR?
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a life-saving procedure that can be helpful in circumstances like a heart attack or a near-drowning, in which someone’s breathing or heart rate stops. Until more advanced medical care can be given, CPR can keep oxygen circulating to the brain and other vital organs. As recommended by the American Heart Association (AHA), chest compressions should always be performed first. If you feel that you’re not confident in your knowledge and abilities, keep in mind that it is always better to act than to do nothing. The difference between doing nothing and doing something might be a matter of life and death.
Here is some advice from the American Heart Association:
- If you’ve never had CPR training, perform hands-only CPR. That requires continuous chest compressions of 100 to 120 per minute until emergency medical personnel arrive (described in more detail below). It is not necessary to perform rescue breathing.
- Trained and ready to go. If you are confident enough with your knowledge and abilities, examine the person to see if they are breathing and have a pulse. Start chest compressions if, after 10 seconds, there is no breathing or pulse. Before giving two rescue breaths, begin CPR by performing 30 chest compressions.
- Trained years ago – If you’ve had CPR training previously but are doubtful of your abilities, just perform chest compressions at a rate of 100 to 120 per minute. Please take note that this advice only applies to adults, kids, and babies that are at least four weeks old. Newborns adhere to a different procedure.
- In order to learn CPR efficiently, take a certified CPR training course that teaches how to operate an automated external defibrillator (AED). Call 911 if you are untrained but need assistance immediately, and they will give you instructions on how to do CPR.
