The BLS quick awareness format aims to maximise public awareness of the urgency
of circulatory arrest, readiness to alert and telephone-guided hands-only CPR and
- recognise a circulatory arrest
- understand that people in circulatory arrest die within minutes without help
- alert correctly
- carry out cardiac massage (if necessary under telephone guidance)
- use AEDs (if necessary under telephone guidance)
- Motivation to participate in further courses
BLS-quick can be used as a stand-alone video, as part of larger campaigns, or in course-like settings with the following content:
- Recognition of cardiovascular arrest
- National emergency numbers
- Cardiac massage (Hands only CPR)
- Defibrillation by means of AED (incl. support by dispatchers)
- Knowledge of the nearest equipment locations
Didactics and material
The minimum intervention is a video provided by the SRC. This can be supplemented with further information and ideally with simple hands-on training. In principle, however, all interventions that serve to raise awareness in this sense are indicated if they are below the threshold of BLS-AED compact or complete courses. Large group settings are also possible, as the SRC does not specify a participant-instructor ratio for this format.
Conclusion and proof
Neither formal degrees nor certificates are required for these events.
Defibrillators that have proven themselves over the years.
