Dinah RN ★★★★★

Excellent book! Much easier to read and follow the new BLS Provider guidelines.

Katie Hanson ★★★★★

I have been looking for a book that would provide me with the basic steps I would need to take in a life at stake situation. This book was just what I was looking for. The way it is broken down with easy step by step instructions for all groups makes it easy to follow and reference when in this type of situation. I am so happy I downloaded this book and would recommended this to anyone looking for a easy to read guide on CPR, AED for both adults and children.

Description

Basic Life Support (BLLS) Provider Handbook, presented by National Health Care Provider Solutions (NHCPS), is a comprehensive resource intended for health care professionals currently enrolled in a Basic Life Support Certification or Recertification Course. It serves as the primary training material for BLS Certification and Recertification courses provided by National Health Care Provider Solutions (www.nhcps.com). Although it is predominantly intended for use during certification courses, the handbook was also created to serve as daily reference material for both health care professionals and non-health care professionals alike.

This course is based on the latest life support guidelines published by the American Heart Association and is designed to train people everywhere to provide high quality basic life support.

The book covers how to provide adult, child, and infant CPR by one or two rescuers, as well as use of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs). Airway management and obstructed airway relief is also covered.

This course is written by Dr. Karl F. Disque, a board certified anesthesiologist and registered pharmacist. Dr. Disque has certified thousands of healthcare professionals with his courses in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS), Basic Life Support (BLS), and CPR, AED, and First Aid. This is one of the most effective and user-friendly training manuals on the market because it was created by a team dedicated to life support education with the goal of training people to help save lives.
