P265 Basic Life SupportMedical Emergencies

These BLS guidelines have been produced in association with the Resuscitation Council (UK) the guidelines were last updated 2010. Basic life support refers to maintaining airway patency and supporting breathing and the circulation without the use of equipment other than a protective device. It is important that those who may be present at the scene of a cardiac arrest, particularly lay bystanders, should have learnt the appropriate resuscitation skills and be able to put them into practice. Simplification of the BLS sequence continues to be a feature of these guidelines, but, in addition, there is now advice on who should be taught what skills, particularly chest-compression-only or chest compression and ventilation.
