Description

We know that there are unique challenges when assessing elderly patients. BLS providers also encounter unique challenges when assessing females for potential cardiac problems. This lesson briefly reviews the BLS assessment skills that are required for both populations. The introduction of 12 lead ECG acquisition gives the BLS provider a chance to orient themselves to the skills necessary when working in system that requires recording and/or transmission of such tracings. NOTE: You will have two attempts at the exam. Please take your time to assure that you achieve the best score possible. A 80% or higher is needed in order to achieve a passing grade. Good luck!
