ACLS BLS for Adults

BLS for adults focuses on doing several tasks simultaneously. In many situations, more than one person is available to do CPR. This choreographed method includes performing chest compressions, managing the airway, delivering rescue breaths, and using the AED, all as a team. As a team, your primary objective for CPR is to maximize chest compression time and minimize any pauses. By coordinating efforts, a team of rescuers can save valuable seconds when time lost equals damage to the heart and brain.
