Description

This module aims to help practitioners refresh their knowledge of basic life support (BLS) supplementary to annual mandatory training. The module offers a step-by-step approach to BLS based on Resuscitation Council (UK) guidelines. There is a need to practise BLS on a regular basis to ensure competency in this area.

A quick assessment of the patient suspected of experiencing cardiac arrest should be made, followed by BLS.
BLS should be performed without delay to ensure optimum outcomes.
BLS is a structured approach to supporting breathing and circulation.
Practitioners should maintain the correct techniques for BLS, including basic airway manoeuvres, chest compressions and ventilations.

List the equipment required to intubate a patient.
Describe how to perform basic life support in an emergency situation.
Understand how to assess a situation, identify dangers and call for help.
