    OVERVIEW

    The course of BLS is aimed to teach to recognize life-threatening (cardio-respiratory) emergencies and to activate techniques of basic life support with either adhults, or chindren, even using a defibrillator.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    Learn Basic Living Support (Basic Life Support) techniques to deal with an emergency using the external semiautomatic defibrillator (DAE), as provided by the ILCOR recommendations, pending the arrival of the Emergency Medical Service

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The outcomes of the course are preparing personnel confident with techniques of basic life support with or without defibrillator. Students will be able to recognize signs of cardio-respiratory arrest  and to activate the sequence of  procedures to support life  parameters (consciousness, ventilation, cardiac activity) in adhults and children, before the arrival of advanced  emergency care personnel.

    TEACHING METHODS

    -Frontal lessons
