The latest Basic Life Support (BLS) Guidelines are used by Edmonton First Aid
The latest BLS guidelines set by the American Heart Association were released in 2010 and updated during the consecutive years. The pathway of Airway, Breathing, and Circulation has now been updated to Circulation, Airway, and Breathing. Activation of the pathway begins with identification of cardiac arrest, followed by immediate CPR and AED use (if needed). There must only be 3-5 minutes interval between the initial collapse and CPR performance. Chest compressions during CPR must be continued until return of spontaneous circulation or need for AED use. Edmonton First Aid ensures that you will be able to utilize the latest BLS guidelines and techniques to make your skills competitive in the health care provider market.

AED Myth or Truth? – Don’t Use an AED in Water
True – Remember that water is a great conductor of electricity. Even excessive moisture on the victim’s skin can decrease the effectiveness of an AED shock. Rescuer’s should always remember to
- Move the victim to a dry area if he or she is in free-standing water
- Ensure that the victims chest is dry and that you (the rescuer) are dry. If you work in an aquatic environment ensure that a towel is always nearby the AED.
