Adult BLS for Healthcare Providers
1. Secure the Scene
Before beginning Basic or Advanced life support on any victim, be sure that both you and the victim are safe from other hazards (traffic, water, etc.).
2. Assess the Victim
Check for responsiveness by shaking the victim’s shoulder and shouting.
Check to see if the victim is breathing normally; if the victim is not breathing or is only gasping proceed with the next step.
3. Activate the Emergency Response System and get AED
Shout for help. If a second rescuer comes, instruct him to call for help and get an AED. If no one responds, call for help using a phone and go for an AED if you know where one is.
4. Perform CPR
