Basic Life Support
The DAN Basic Life Support (BLS) course will not only train divers and non-divers to resuscitate an injured person with a circulatory arrest, but can also prevent a person from getting in that condition.
External bleeding, choking and shock can lead to severe circulatory and respiratory problems. The DAN BLS course will prepare you to react in the correct way, when accidents happen.
The BLS course represents entry-level training designed to educate persons in providing BLS techniques to adult victims with life-threatening injuries, while activating the local medical services.
The DAN Basic Life Support provider ("DAN BLS Provider") programme is designed to teach the knowledge and skills needed to provide BLS to adult victims. BLS consists out of several first aid techniques that support (or might restore) life. At the end of the course the DAN BLS provider will be able to recognise an emergency, activate the EMS and provide early BLS, while waiting for an automated external defibrillator (AED) or advanced life support to
arrive at the scene of the accident. Early access to the emergency medical services (EMS) and early BLS are two of the four links in the chain of survival.
