Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers

Basic Life Support (BLS) refers to the care healthcare providers and public safety professionals  provide to patients who are experiencing respiratory arrest, cardiac arrest or airway obstructions. BLS includes psychomotor skills for performing high-quality CPR, using an automated external defibrillator (AED) and relieving an obstructed airway for patients of all ages.

BLS also focusses on the integration of the following key skills to help responders achieve  optimal patient outcomes:

  • Critical thinking: Clear and rational thinking based on facts presented and the provider’s experience and expertise
  • Problem solving: Identifying solutions to issues that arise using readily available resources
  • Communication: A closed-loop process involving a sender, message and receiver
  • Team dynamics: Integration and coordination of all responders working together toward a common goal
