The American Heart Association standards for Basic Life Support Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is recommended for all licensed and certified healthcare practitioners. This class teaches students how to perform high-quality CPR individually and as part of a team, use of an automated external defibrillator (AED), as well as foreign-body airway obstruction (choking) techniques. BLS students learn rescue techniques for adults, children, and infants.
Notice: Per City guidelines, masking will be strongly recommended but not mandatory. Wearing a high-quality mask such as KN95 or N95 mask, or double masking, is strongly encouraged. It is important to wear a mask that is well-fitted. For information on proper masking, including how to double mask, please read this guidance from the CDC: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/your-health/effective-masks.html.
