The Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Providers Classroom Course is designed to provide a wide variety of healthcare professionals the ability to recognize several life-threatening emergencies, provide CPR, use an AED, and relieve choking in a safe, timely and effective manner.
The Heartsaver CPR AED course teaches CPR, Choking, and AED skills for adults, children and infants. You will learn how to give compressions and breaths to an infant, child, and adult, how to relieve a choking victim, and how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED). This is an excellent course for:
