Who should take Basic Life Support Class?

Medical emergencies like heart attacks, strokes and other injuries and emergencies don’t just happen in hospitals. It’s important for professionals in many varied fields (as well as lay people) to be trained and ready to handle a medical emergency. A Basic Life Support class can empower people with the specific tools they need to handle a medical emergency.

While anyone can take a BLS course, many different types of professionals should consider obtaining their certification. Most professionals in the healthcare field such as nurses, physicians, Pas and technicians are required to carry BLS certification in order to work on the floor of a hospital. Many other healthcare professionals in other types of medical surroundings like nursing homes or dental offices may also be expected or required to carry BLS certification.

Emergency service workers and first responders including police, firefighters and EMTs should be prepared to provide emergency medical care and may find BLS training beneficial.

There are many non-traditional first responders who could also benefit from certification as they may be called upon to provide emergency care in certain scenarios. They include:

  • Park rangers
  • Cab drivers
  • Utility workers
  • Teachers
  • Athletic coaches
  • Factory or construction workers
  • Bus drivers
  • Security guards
  • Hunting and fishing guides
  • Camp counselors, etc.

Although Basic Life Support training is intended primarily for healthcare professionals, any individual who is interested in being prepared for a medical emergency is welcome to take the course.

    Considering BLS training, but not sure whether it’s right for you? Having the tools at hand to deal with a variety of emergency situations can be extremely useful in just about any walk of life. If you haven’t already learned to handle all the situations covered by Basic Life Support training, you stand to gain something very precious. Here are the things you’ll learn in most BLS courses:

    Recognize an emergency and alert medical services : The first link in the four link “chain of survival” identified by the AHA and other medical organizations in the United States. You’ll learn to spot an emergency early in the event and immediately alert any emergency medical services necessary before valuable time has been lost.

    CPR :Once the authorities have been alerted, individuals with BLS training will be ready for the second of the four links, CPR, if the situation warrants it. Students will learn the latest CPR techniques, designed and studied for the greatest potential benefit to the patient.

    Defibrillator use : Students who have completed their BLS training will also be ready for the third link of the chain of survival, early use of a defibrillator in situations warranting such use. The training will include usage of an AED and the technique for mixing analysis with CPR to identify situations where a shockable rhythm has arisen.

    Other emergency care : Students of a BLS course will also learn basic care for a variety of situations including drowning, cardiac arrest, respiratory arrest, airway obstruction, etc.

    Students who complete BLS training will also have a foundation ready for Advanced Life Support training.
