Basic Life Support with AED

Healthcare staff need to do an annual update for Basic Life Support – which is also known as CPR. Would you know what to do if a loved one or friend collapsed? This course is a lifesaving course that will also allow you to use one of the 1000’s of life saving Automated External Defibrillators (AED) anywhere in a public place.
