A BLS course designed for healthcare professionals with a duty to respond to perform high-quality CPR in a team environment.
The Canadian Red Cross Basic Life Support course teaches pre-hospital or in-facility responders to recognize and intervene where patients are suffering from cardiac arrest or respiratory arrest. The BLS curriculum is meant to support the delivery of high-performance, team-based professional resuscitation. This course is industry driven, designed as a robust resuscitation training program geared toward high-quality CPR in a team environment, and recognizes the nuances of multidisciplinatory teams with varied experiences.
This program does not cover basic layperson CPR training - it is specifically for professionals to respond to cardiac and breathing emergencies in adults, children, infants, and neonates.Certification matches industry standards, and is valid for 1 year.
