The American Heart Association BLS Provider course trains professionals with clinical responsibilities to provide lifesaving interventions to victims of cardiac and respiratory arrest. This course covers CPR and use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) for adults, children, and infants. This certification is required for most healthcare providers that work in patient care areas and for students enrolled in medical and nursing programs.

The Basic Life Support (CPR/AED) Provider Course is designed to train healthcare professionals to recognize several life-threatening emergencies, provide CPR, use an AED, and relieve choking in a safe, timely and effective manner. The course is intended for healthcare professionals and healthcare students with clinical responsibilities.

BLS Providers meets the current ECC 2015 and the current American Heart Association standards for Healthcare Provider CPR and AED. It covers CPR and AED for Adults, Children, and Infants.

The PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support) 2020 Renewal Course is designed to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children, resulting in improved outcomes. The course trains healthcare providers how to initiate and direct advanced life support procedures that go beyond “basic life support.” Included are covered all phases of stabilization and transport associated with a pediatric emergency in both a field or hospital environment. Students completing this course gain an enhanced ability to evaluate and manage an infant or child with respiratory compromise, circulatory compromise, or cardiac arrest.

The PALS course includes participation in a series of simulated core cases that reinforce important concepts, including:

  • Identification and treatment of medical conditions that place the child at risk for cardiac arrest
  • The systematic approach to pediatric assessment, including general assessment, primary assessment, secondary assessment, and tertiary assessment
  • The “assess-categorize-decide-act” approach to assessment and management of a seriously ill infant or child
  • Effective resuscitation team dynamics

This course is designed to meet the current Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) training requirements and to teach students and employees how to prepare for potential occupational exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials.
