Whats the difference between American Heart Association and the American Red Cross
American Heart Association
Basic Life Support (BLS) for healthcare professionals trains participants to promptly recognize several life-threatening emergencies, give high-quality CPR, deliver appropriate ventilation’s and provide early use of an AED.
American Red Cross
The 2019 Basic Life Support (BLS) course offered by American Red Cross provides healthcare providers and public safety professionals the knowledge and skills necessary to respond to breathing and cardiac emergencies in adult, child, and infant patients. Currently this is not recommended for those in the Medical Field in the North West as few hospitals will accept it. If your working on a Military Base, you will need the Red Cross certification.
