AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION BLS CPR - INITIAL OR RENEWAL (LIVE)

  • Board Restrictions note: Co-sponsored courses may not be eligible for CE in Tennessee; Credit calculations may vary for New Mexico approval
  • The BLS for Healthcare Providers course covers core material such as adult and pediatric CPR (including two-rescuer scenarios and use of the bag mask), foreign-body airway obstruction and automated external defibrillation. This course is for healthcare providers such as EMS personnel, physician assistants, doctors, dentists, nurses, respiratory therapists, and lifeguards who must have a credential (card) documenting successful completion of a Healthcare Provider CPR course. The AHA’s new BLS Course has been updated to include science and education from the 2015 Guidelines Update for CPR and ECC. It teaches both single-rescuer and team basic life support skills for application in both prehospital and in-facility environments, with a focus on high-quality CPR and team dynamics.

    Your patients and their families look to you and your staff to provide optimal care for themselves and loved ones while in your office, do you and your staff know what to do in a cardiac arrest situation? Over 47% of cardiac deaths occur outside of the hospital. For every minute a person is in cardiac arrest with shockable rhythms chance of survival goes down 10% for every minute that defibrillation is not performed. This course will provide instruction for one and two person adult, pediatric and infant CPR, rescue breathing, obstructed airway, Automated External Defibrillator use, and use of barrier devices as required by OSHA.

    As long as all course components are met a student, the student will receive a BLS Provider Basic Life Support Certification Card in the mail. The format of the BLS card has changed. It is the BLS CPR for the Healthcare Provider CPR Card, even though it does not state that specifically. This card is the new version of the old “Healthcare Provider” CPR Card.  The new format comes directly from the American Heart Association, and unfortunately, neither we at The Institute for Continuing Education nor Lifesavers can do anything  about the new card design.

    Initial CPR - 4 hours, 4 CEUs
    Recertification CPR - 3 hours, 3 CEUs  (card must not be more than 1 month expired)
