Cardiovascular disease is one of society’s biggest health problems. Most avoidable deaths are caused by heart disease and occur frequently in out-of-hospital settings. As a result, efforts are being made to train the population, not just people directly related to the health industry, so that they can play a vital role as first responders.

With this course, we have established a student/teacher ratio of 8:1 to ensure proper practice and adequate follow-up.

It will be taught by an instructor from the Catalan Resuscitation Council (CRR) and will include the content laid down for official BLS-AED courses.

Students who pass the course will receive an official BLS-AED training certificate issued by the Catalan Resuscitation Council (CRR).

Objectives

By the end of the course, participants should know how to:

  1. Assess an unconscious victim.
  2. Perform chest compressions and artificial ventilation.
  3. Correctly use a semi-automated external defibrillator.
  4. Place unconscious but breathing victims in recovery position.
