Basic Life Support Certification Course for Health Care Professionals
Tuesday, July 21, 2015
This course is full.
This course is hands-on.
This is a recertification course that reviews CPR for patients of all ages (including ventilation with a barrier device, a bag-mask device, and oxygen), relief of a foreign body airway obstruction (FBAO), and use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) in compliance with the new Massachusetts law 234 CMR for the dental industry.
People who currently hold a BLS certification card and who may provide health care to patients in or outside of a hospital setting, as well as those required to take a health care provider course for employment, will benefit from this class.
The four-hour program incorporates multiple learning styles: videotape demonstration, instructor led discussions, and peer practice sessions. All participants who successfully complete the course, including the written examination and skills’ demonstration, will receive a BLS for Healthcare Providers course completion card, which is valid for two years.
