Basic Life Support
The Basic Life Support system is a concept created by the American Heart Association that provides an easy algorythm to follow in case of cardiac arrest. Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is immediately assumed once a person falls unconscious, isn’t breathing, and has no pulse. Pulse and breathing is ascertained in ten seconds or less, after which chest compressions must be started. Rescue breaths are given after 30 chest compressions and the cycle is repeated until return of spontaneous circulation.
