Basic Life Support
Learn how to recognize adult and pediatric life-threatening emergencies, how to provide basic life support (BLS) and what to do in case of airway obstruction or choking. Basic Life Support has been approved for training for Emergency Medical Services personnel and accepted by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT).
Compressions on adult patients are done at a rate of at least 100 compressions per minute. The chest is compressed at least two inches on each compression.
High-quality compressions are a critical component of effective CPR. Always compress fast and deep and allow the chest to rebound to its normal position at the top of each compression.
Blood pressure is created and maintained with well-performed compressions. If compressions stop, pressure is quickly lost and has to be built up again. Minimize any interruptions when doing compressions
