The BLS course stands for Basic Life Support using the automated external defibrillator (AED). This training focuses on adult CPR.
Every year, 15,000 people in the Netherlands suffer cardiac arrest (circulatory arrest) outside the hospital. Every week that’s 300 people: young, old, male or female, it can happen to anyone. A quality CPR performed significantly increases the chance of survival.
