Importance of Basic Life Support

 

The session emphasized the critical nature of BLS, highlighting its vital role in saving lives during emergencies such as cardiac arrest or other life-threatening situations. BLS primarily focuses on sustaining essential life functions—breathing, circulation, and brain activity—until professional medical assistance arrives. Key components of BLS include cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED), and managing choking victims.
