Basic Life Support (Adult & Child) is a popular short first aid course for non-clinical role people who work in GP practices, Dental surgeries, or Community health centres.
This qualification is OFQUAL regulated and accredited by QNUK a leading awarding organisation for health & safety and first aid qualifications and is nationally recognised and accepted throughout the UK.
Learners will learn how to successfully manage an unconscious casualty and how to give effective lifesaving CPR to the casualty and use an AED safely, confidently, and competently. Learners will also learn how to place a casualty in the recovery position to keep the casualty’s airway open and keep them safe till emergency services arrive on the scene.
Choking is quite a common occurrence and learners will learn how to provide essential and effective treatment for a casualty (adult, child, and infant) who shows signs of choking.
Over 60,000 people have cardiac arrests outside the hospital each year in the UK, a basic life support course like this could make a very big difference to someone who is having a really bad day.
