Basic Life Support
Basic Life Support was created by the American Heart Association to save lives after a person becomes a victim of cardiac arrest. The BLS includes (1) recognition of SCA or sudden cardiac arrest, (2) activation of the emergency response system, (3) early cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and (4) rapid defibrillation with an automated external defibrillator.
The 2010 BLS Guidelines emphasize the following:
- Recognition of SCA based on (1) unresponsiveness and (2) absence of normal breathing such as gasping or not breathing at all
- “Look, Listen, and Feel” removed from the 2005 BLS algorithm
- Sequence change from A-B-C (airway, breathing, circulation) to C-A-B, in terms of priority
- Hands-Only CPR or continuous chest compression over the middle of the chest for the untrained rescuer
- Continuation of CPR until return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC)
