Basic Life Support
Basic life Support (BLS) is a set of guidelines made by the American Heart Association and St Mark James Training. It outlines updates on techniques and pathways used in providing emergency care to a person who has suffered from cardiac arrest. Over the years, the guidelines have changed because of new studies regarding CPR. AEDs are now included in the emergency response system, along with CPR. AEDs are machines able to detect heart rhythms and apply needed shock to the victim. This is done manually or automatically and adjunct to CPR. These updated techniques are all included in the CPR training courses offered by Mississauga First Aid so trainees are assured of developing the latest skills and knowledge regarding CPR and AED.

A short lesson on managing blast injuries is given below to give you a head start on your training with Mississauga First Aid.
Managing blast injuries
Blast injuries may seem rare to most people because the average Canadian has never even seen a serious blast. However, for people who work in the mining, transportation, and construction industries, the use of explosives and accidents because of them are very common. Three types of injuries can occur from blasts.
- Injuries can result from being struck by materials thrown by the blast
- Injuries can result from being thrown from the blast itself
- Injuries can occur to hollow organs, such as the lungs, due to the shock wave from the blast
All of these injuries can lead to death if managed poorly. Learn to recognize and manage these injuries by enrolling in workplace approved basic first aid training with Mississauga First Aid.
