A quick review of the Adult BLS Algorithm to study before taking your ACLS test.
While the Adult BLS Algorithm is classified as a Basic Life Support (BLS) algorithm, it is undoubtedly an algorithm you need to be familiar with in order to pass your Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) exam thanks to a relatively high degree of carryover between the two courses.
BLS emphasizes early CPR and defibrillation using an AED. The primary goal of the Adult BLS Algorithm is to improve the chances of survival by ensuring adequate oxygenation, ventilation, and circulation. The Adult BLS Algorithm provides the necessary steps for both single rescuer and multiple rescuer scenarios of an unresponsive adult.
