What is BLS?
BLS (Basic Life Support) is an introductory healthcare course that is offered through the American Heart Association (AHA). BLS teaches individuals how to recognize and respond to cardiovascular emergencies and provide necessary life-saving care. The Northeast Medical Institute provides BLS classes for medical professionals and lay people who are interested in learning BLS skills, such as CPR, choking prevention, and related basic medical procedures. BLS certification shortens response times when emergency situations arise, thereby increasing the chances of a positive outcome for those in need. Whether you are a professional or a layperson interested in gaining lifesaving skills, BLS training provided by the AHA at the Northeast Medical Institute can provide you with the skills needed to save lives today.
