Basic life support (BLS) is the recognition of and initial intervention or treatment given by pre-hospital or in-facility responders to a patient suffering from cardiac arrest or respiratory arrest:
In-facility: Any environment within a clinical (including hospital) setting.
Pre-hospital: Any environment outside of a clinical (including hospital) setting.
Responder: Any individual with the professional responsibility to provide care to a patient in either a pre-hospital or an in-facility setting.
Your school and / or employer should specifically request you to take Basic Life Support because it is generally reserved for first responders and pre-hospital care personnel.
