Project Description

Be Prepared & Increase Confidence

The Basic Life Support or BLS training provides a wide variety of healthcare professionals the ability to recognize different life-threatening emergencies, such as choking, provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use an automated external defibrillator (AED) in a safe, timely and effective manner.  Newly qualified physicians will undoubtedly be placed in emergency situations where the expectation is to apply BLS skills.  Therefore, preparation and confidence in resuscitation skills among medical students needs to be addressed.

What is Basic Life Support?

Basic life support is the level of medical care given to patients with life-threatening conditions until they can be given full medical attention in a hospital. Therefore, it is generally used in the pre-hospital setting and can be provided without medical equipment or drugs.  Basic life support involves various life-saving techniques that focus on CAB of pre-hospital emergency care:

  • Circulation – techniques which are done to maintain an adequate blood supply to vital organs, to ensure oxygen delivery to all cells and remove metabolic waste
  • Airway – management of the victim’s airway to protect and maintain a clear passageway for gases between the lungs and the atmosphere.
  • Breathing – maintenance of rhythmic inflation and deflation of the lungs  to ensure adequate respiration

BLS training provides healthcare providers with enough confidence and skills necessary to give lifesaving aid to a person who needs emergency care due to injury or illness.  Examples of life-threatening circumstances include heart attacks, stroke, choking, drowning, bleeding and more.

“My biggest problem was understanding the questions and psychiatry.  Dr.Untara helped me how to tackle questions, time management, and understanding of this whole exam.  She guided me through the entire process until the day before my exam.  Her useful tips got me through my exam day.  Her thorough review helped me a lot to recall things during my test.  With her help, I successfully passed step 1.”

“Excellent, well thought out and well designed. This is a MUST-HAVE review program for anyone aspiring for USMLE.  Being a part of this program was most definitely a breath of fresh air.  It was not only the best prep program I have ever attended, but was also incredibly helpful in expanding my intellect.  What makes this program so unique and special is its personalized and structured approach, which let me explore my weaknesses and strengthen the same.  The instructors (Dr. Untara and Dr. Owen) were very patient and encouraging throughout, making it an incredible learning experience. Looking forward to coming back for my Step 2 classes. “
