Online CPR Training

G-Medical has just started a new initiative and it begins with continuing education. We would like to continue education throughout the year or two years that most certifications last.

With this being said we launched our online portion of our CPR class, please click here to see our CPR training videos on specialized knowledge that could be tailored to caregivers dealing with children who are autistic or security guards securing facilities with multiple people of different age groups presenting different problems.

These different career fields need specialized training and in our CPR class we’re only able to give a general education. We like to keep our classes limited to only 3 to 4 hours but our education and curriculum could last from 8-12 hours.

So with that being said we started to push a lot of our training into books and training videos so that our students can be more prepared either before they come to our class or if they leave our class they can always stay on top of the latest training that can help them to be on top of the newest techniques over the 2 years of their certification.

G Medical went out of their way to provide an abundance of extra training videos so that our students can learn what they need to learn when they need to learn it without having to take a three four hour class once every two years. Sure when you come to our class we want you to learn your skills like compressions, or mouth-to-mouth breaths,  using the bag mask device, or even how to stop bleeding and applying a tourniquet.

We wanted to take it even a step further so that we know where give you the absolute best education possible.

CPR BLS For Health Care Providers

BLS stands for basic life support that relates to a CPR card normally reserved for healthcare providers. The reason why so many people get confused about what this is, is because their jobs tell them they need to get a CPR card but based on the job that you have if it’s in the healthcare field of some nature you will be required to have a BLS for healthcare provider CPR card.

So when you get a card it will say BLS provider but in all actuality it is a CPR card, get it?  I Understand the confusion, below is an example of what the card will look like. On the last line in small writing it actually says CPR AED.CPR BLS For Health Care Providers

In 2016 the card changed from health care provider to BLS provider. BLS in essence would be based on a team resuscitation attempt, meaning two or more people are going to work together to save someone’s life doing CPR.

If someone were to come into the emergency room where their life is literally on the line, there could be five or more people working together on that victim to save their life.

  • Someone may have to set up an IV give ACLS medications
  • Someone may have to do compressions
  • Someone may have to intubate the victim and do some rescue breaths
  • There will be a doctor overseeing the situation
  • Someone may be administering the difibulator
  • Somebody will need to document the entire emergency response

In 2016 The American Heart Association came out with a new CPR video that discusses Team Dynamics. These Team Dynamics in essence are all about knowing your role before the emergency happens and knowing your limitations this is what BLS is all about.

Here at G medical CPR this is what we teach you but just to give you a heads up when your job ask you for a BLS card or a CPR card and we give you a CPR card that says BLS on top of it they are synonyms.

This is why we wrote this blog post just so you can understand the difference between BLS and CPR they are exactly the same, they’re just referring to a higher level of CPR where health care providers who may be in the high-risk environment will have to deal with CPR on a regular basis.

We’ve had students that do CPR every day of their job, they work in the emergency room and they give us feedback on how important these resuscitation the skills are
