Course Description

The American Heart Association Basic Life Support (BLS) for the Healthcare Provider and Heartsaver First Aid courses are the topics of study for this course. This course will teach students to recognize several life-threatening emergencies such as cardiac arrest, foreign-body airway obstruction, and breathing difficulty. It also covers the skills of CPR for victims of all ages, how to provide effective ventilation using a barrier device and use of an automated external defibrillator (AED). The First Aid course will cover first aid emergencies such as fainting, diabetes and low blood sugar, stroke, seizure, bleeding emergencies, shock, head and spine injuries, burns, bites and stings, temperature-related emergencies, poison emergencies, and bone, joint, and muscle injuries. The course also includes instruction on the anatomy of the lungs, heart and brain, as well as lifestyle habits that decrease risk factors for heart attack and stroke. In addition, there will be discussions related to health and wellness.


Upon successful completion of the course and its requirements, each student will receive two certification cards, BLS for the Healthcare Provider and Heartsaver First Aid. The certification cards are valid for 2 years.
