SXU Hosts CPR Instruction for Healthcare Providers


CPR Instruction for Healthcare Providers

What: The Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare provider's course is to train participants to save lives of victims in cardiac arrest through high-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The American Heart Association designed the course to prepare healthcare professionals to know how to perform CPR in both in-and out-of-hospital settings. You will be trained to promptly recognize cardiac arrest, give high-quality chest compressions, deliver appropriate ventilations, clear airway obstructions, and provide early use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) as part of a team and individually.  The course also covers rescue techniques for adult, child, and infants.
