A critical part of Basic Life Support training is understanding and properly adhering to the BLS algorithms. These present the basic course of action that a rescuer should perform for life support. We provide this information for free to our visitors and each page is a separate algorithm which is linked below. See our website terms.
BLS Adult Basic Life Support Algorithm
In the algorithm for adult basic life support, emphasis is placed upon immediate recognition of sudden cardiac arrest and rapid defibrillation with an AED (Automated External Defibrillator).BLS Adult »
BLS Simplified Algorithm
For laypersons or other non-HCP personnel, this algorithm is a simplified approach to cardiopulmonary resuscitation and life support.BLS Simplified »
BLS Pediatric Algorithm
In Pediatric Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers (HCP), the rescuer should first determine quickly if the victim is unresponsive. The provider should note if the victim is not breathing or is only gasping. There science surrounding this pediatric algorithm are based on the fact that children are much more likely than adults to enter respiratory arrest.BLS Pediatric »
