The goal of the BLS for Healthcare Providers Workshop is to train participants to save lives of victims in cardiac arrest though high-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The American Heart Association designed the BLS for Healthcare Providers Workshop to prepare healthcare professionals to know how to perform CPR in both in- and out-of-hospital settings. This workshop trains participants to promptly recognize cardiac arrest, give high-quality chest compressions, deliver appropriate ventilations, and provide early use of an automated external defibrillator (AED), as part of a team and individually. This workshop also teaches how to relieve choking. The workshop includes adult, child, and infant rescue techniques.
