BLS or Basic Life Support is a level of medical care used when dealing with life threatening injury or illness until patient can be provided with full medical care. Unlike ALS, Basic Life support generally does not include any drugs or invasive skills. Basic Life Support services consist of life-saving techniques that are used in pre-hospital emergency medical care, and cover: cardiac arrest, respiratory arrest, drowning, foreign body airway obstruction and other life threatening situations. Providing and maintaining clear passageway for gasses (airway), artificial respiration, AED, bleeding control and CPR are some of the techniques included in BLS.
