BASIC LIFE SUPPORT (HCP)

Basic Life Support (formerly Healthcare Provider) is catered to first responders and pre-hospital care professionals in the medical industry:

COURSE CONTENT BREAKDOWN:

  • CHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION TO BASIC LIFE SUPPORT: 10:00am-10:30am

    One of the most important skills participants will learn is to understand what your role is in an emergency. This plays a critical role to ensure coordination, which ensures you and your team provides the best quality care in an organized and coordinated fashion. High performance CPR involves performing CPR with minimal to no interruptions. This ensures the highest chance for survival in a life threating situation.

  • CHAPTER TWO: BASIC LIFE SUPPORT SKILLS: 10:30am-12:00pm

    In this chapter, participants will learn how to don and doff gloves to prevent disease transmission, a primary survey, chest compression ratio, an introduction to oxygen administration using a bag valve mask (or BVM), airway obstruction, and assisted ventilations during a respiratory arrest.

  • CHAPTER THREE: AIRWAY MANAGEMENT OPTIONAL 1/2 HOUR

    Participants will learn how to open the airway using the cross finger (scissor) and tongue jaw lift technique, learn how to use adjuncts (oropharyngeal and nasopharyngeal) for a clear and unobstructed airway. For intubation, participants will learn how to insert a supraglottic airway if other airway management methods fail.

    Fluid in the lungs can cause aspiration, so suctioning is taught to keep the airway clear of fluids that may interfere with breathing and a clear airway.
    *****Please note that this chapter is an add-on and is not included in the BLS only course.

  • CHAPTER FOUR: OXYGEN THERAPY: OPTIONAL 1 HOUR

    Hypoxia and hypoxemia is a decrease in oxygen in the tissues and blood. If not corrected, it can lead to death. All participants will be taught to use a pulse oximeter to measure oxygen saturation in the blood as well as the heart beat rate. This will determine whether or not you should administer supplementary oxygen to bring the oxygen concentration up to normal levels. This can be achieved through the use of oxygen cylinders.

    Participants will be taught how to set up and operate oxygen tanks, regulators, and select the proper type of oxygen delivery device based on their oxygen saturation level.
