dumb question.........BLS?

  1. I've been reading several job descriptions and they all say BLS required, no matter if it's a CNA, LPN, RN. Sorry to be dumb but what IS that?!

    There is NO such thing as a silly question .. BLS is Basic Life Support.....

    Basic life support. Think CPR with a few extras tossed in.
    You might learn how to perform CPR on infants, children, and adults and how to use an AED machine.

    It stands for Basic Life *something*

    Learn how to perform rescue breathing, one-rescuer and two-rescuer CPR, how to use airway adjuncts, and how to operate an automated external defibrillator (AED).
