American Heart Association HeartCode BLS
The American Heart Association's HeartCode BLS is an online program that is perfect for the busy professional who cannot attend a traditional CPR course. It features case based scenarios with interative videos and activities. This course includes the same material as the traditional classroom based course for adults, children and infants.
Recognizing medical emergencies
Accessing the appropriate emergency resources
Providing CPR (including 1 and 2 rescurer scenarios)
Providing ventilations with a bag valve mask
Relief of a foreign body airway obstruction
Use of an automated external defibrillator
Upon completion of part 1 you will need to sign up for a skills practice and testing session.
The BLS skills session is an opportunity to practice and test the necessary hands on skills. Upon successful completion of your BLS skills session you will have earned your 2-year American Heart Association Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers certification and will receive your card the same day!
Skill Session Overview
Please wear comfortable clothing to the skill session. Upon arrival, you will be asked to present your part 1 certificate of completion. I'm focused on your understanding/success and will ask if there was any aspect of the course for which you have questions. Take this opportunity to address any topics that may not be clear.
Prior to testing I will work with you to make sure you are comfortable performing the following skills:
Adult/Child 1-Rescuer CPR
Adult 2-Rescuer CPR and AED
Infant 1- and 2- Rescuer CPR
Skill sessions are held at the Charlottesville-Albemarle Rescue Squad. We meet most Saturdays at 11am. Please contact me to confirm.
Upon successful completion of the skill session you will receive your CPR card the same day!
Payment accepted after the skill session is complete.
