Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers (BLS) – Blended Learning
The purpose of the Orange County American Red Cross Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers course is to teach those with a duty to act (professional rescuers and health care providers) the knowledge and skills needed to respond appropriately to breathing and cardiac emergencies. This includes the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) to care for a victim experiencing cardiac arrest.
Please dress comfortably as we will be on the ground demonstrating skills. Feel free to bring snacks and a drink to help keep you alert. There is complimentary coffee and water on site, and a refrigerator available for your use.
