Cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death and disability in the world. Many studies have clearly highlighted the fact that the fatal or foreboding effects of cardiovascular disease are preventable, yet they continue to rise; primarily because the awareness and preventive strategies remain inadequate. Systematic understanding and practicing the flow of care developed by American Heart Association (AHA) can help improve the survival rates to a great extent. Being health care professionals you always have a critical role in providing high quality cardiovascular care.
The Basic life support (BLS) course is to train participants to save lives of victims in cardiac arrest through high quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation(CPR).The American Heart Association(AHA) designed the BLS course to teach health care professionals how to perform high-quality CPR individually or as a team.
This course has been designed to explain the basic concepts underlying ECG, identify abnormal ECG rhythms and also to review and obtain a better understanding of medications used in Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support scenarios for healthcare professionals.
A good understanding of the ECG helps to detect important pathological and physiological problems allowing early intervention and a better understanding about pharmacology will help participants to work effectively as part of emergency medical care team.
The systematic approach which we have used throughout the course will help you to master the topics.
