This module aims to help practitioners refresh their knowledge of basic life support (BLS) supplementary to annual mandatory training. The module offers a step-by-step approach to BLS based on Resuscitation Council (UK) guidelines. There is a need to practise BLS on a regular basis to ensure competency in this area. A quick assessment of the patient suspected of experiencing cardiac arrest should be made, followed by BLS. BLS should be performed without delay to ensure optimum outcomes. BLS is a structured approach to supporting breathing and circulation. Practitioners should maintain the correct techniques for BLS, including basic airway manoeuvres, chest compressions and ventilations.
