What Is the Basic Life Support (BLS) Certification?

1

Most people are familiar with CPR and First Aid certification programs. These are basic, foundational certifications that are required – or strongly recommended – for a wide range of professionals, from lifeguards and daycare providers to police officers and medical health professionals.

It may come as a surprise then when you go to apply for one of these jobs – typically one that involves some aspect of direct health or medical care – and see the job requirements include a BLS (Basic Life Support) certification. What is that all about?

These courses take the traditional CPR course and go a bit more in-depth when it comes to things like: 

  • CPR in a healthcare or medically-oriented environments.
  • Improvement of chest compression fraction.
  • Realistic scenarios, simulations, and animations depicting rescuers, teams, and patients CPR when administered as a team, which is touched on in basic CPR but requires more emphasis for Healthcare professionals.
  • AED instruction.
  • Additional medical support information such as administering oxygen masks
