For adults, using the heels of your hand with fingers interlocked while children and infants require less pressure, as we will see later.

Hands only CPR can be enough to sustain an adult in certain situations until help arrives.

The BLS certification course and training commences with a brief introduction to basic life support. As per Good Samaritan Law, many states have enacted what's known as a Good Samaritan law, which gives legal protection to anyone who seeks out and attempts to provide aid during an emergency. So, if you witness a car accident or a heart attack and decide to help, don't be afraid that you might get sued for doing so. Your good intentions are protected in these states.

As healthcare providers, it is essential to remember that as real life emergencies happen, the first order of action is to provide essential care techniques learned through the BLS course, call 911 and perform CPR/AED until paramedics arrive.

The BLS test features 25 questions that hold a 1 point value each. Created in multiple choice or true or false variations, you need at least 70% to pass. Students have unlimited tries to pass the exam and for no extra cost. Also, some Healthcare providers have significant experience and knowledge and prefer to review the latest AHA guidelines changes and directly jump to the test to take the certification test.
