Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers

During the current pandemic, StartCPR has reformatted all courses through our online portal in partnership with the AHA. Your Skills Session is included in the course purchase.

The American Heart Association's Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Providers course is a video-based, instructor-led course that teaches both single-rescuer and team basic life support. This course trains participants to promptly recognize several life-threatening emergencies, give high-quality chest compressions, deliver appropriate ventilations and provide early use of an AED.

Once you have completed your online BLS Provider course, you will be required to complete your skills session (hybrid) in our Hinsdale office. During your registration process, you will choose your skills session date & time.  Our skills sessions are approximately 30+ minutes; we are using COVID precautions, i.e., student distancing, single mannequin use, & masks.

 

 

 

BLS is the foundation to patient resuscitation through proper and timely oxygenation. Aggressive Rx is the cornerstone of assuring the best possible outcome which helps to improve cardiac viability during a lethal cardiac event.
