UK Resuscitation Council Accreditted Immediate Life Support
Immediate Life Support is ideal for healthcare professionals who may have to act as the first responder in an emergency, giving them the skills to manage patients in cardiac arrest before a cardiac arrest team arrives. An ILS course provides a variety of skills, from managing a deteriorating patient, identifying causes and treating cardiac arrest, to improving abilities as both a team member and leader.
ILS certification is recognised across the UK, the EU and Australia.
During the one-day course, you will develop the skills to:
recognise and treat the deteriorating patient using the ABCDE approach;
identify the causes and promote the prevention of cardiopulmonary arrest;
undertake the skills of quality CPR and defibrillation (manual and /or AED) and simple airway manoeuvres;
utilise non-technical skills to facilitate team leadership and effective team membership.
Who is this course for?
The ILS course is suitable for doctors, medical students, nurses, nursing students, midwives, paramedics and student paramedics, physiotherapists, dentistry professionals and other health and care professionals.
