Basic Life Support (BLS) is the primary medical aid provided to a person in an emergency medical situation. This procedure can prove to be very helpful when it comes to saving the life of an individual. It is important to understand that the objective of BLS is not to ‘treat’ the person but to buy some valuable time until the emergency medical aid arrives.
BLS procedure is mainly used on people experiencing cardiac arrest or respiratory failure. With this procedure, the breathing and heartbeat of the person can be resuscitated. However, it is important to provide professional medical care to the patient.
While BLS procedure can be very useful, it is important to provide it the right way! For this reason, great emphasis is placed on BLS training provided by professional institutes. BLS certification can equip medical as well as non-medical professionals with the required skills and knowledge. This video throws more light on the importance of BLS training.
