A Quick Guide on Essential Courses to Help You Take a Leap in Your Career with CPR 123®
A sudden cardiac or respiratory arrest is one of the worst life threatening situations. Immediate medical treatments regarding cardiac or respiratory arrest are important for everyone, from professional service providers to non-medical personnel. It is an inevitable situation, which may cause severe damage to the heart and brain within a few minutes. If the treatment is not provided within 8–10 minutes, chances are that the person may die.
If you are a professional, then the following courses can help you take a leap in your career.
CPR or Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is an emergency treatment used during cardiac or respiratory arrest due to situations like heart attack and drowning. According to the American Heart Association, all Cardiopulmonary resuscitation treatments should start from pumping the heart. An efficient CPR treatment is aided with most modern technology.
ACLS or Advance Cardiac Life Support is a combination of BLS or Basic Life Support and advance life support techniques. After the course, the practitioner should be able to handle different kinds of cardiac and respiratory emergencies, different kinds of pre-arrest emergencies, and provide basic treatment for heart stroke.
BLs or Basic Life Support treatments are suitable for everyone including doctors, firefighters, respondents, nurses, law enforcement authorities, and others. After the course, the practitioner should be able to provide basic life support for cardiac arrest, respiratory obstruction, reinstating breathing using mask or mouth-to-mouth treatments, treating choking or drowning victims, and more.
PALS is used for advance treatments of cardiac and respiratory arrest. As it is an advance course, the CPRs must learn BLS and ACLS before enrolling into PALS. After this course, the practitioner should be able to acquire vascular access, identify and provide basic treatment for cardiac arrest or failure, provide fluid and medication therapy, and identify rhythm disturbances and treat them.
