Every 5 years the AHA puts out new science guidelines and updates their administration guidelines as well as updating the look of the cards. This year the Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers class, better known as BLS for HCP, also got a name change. The AHA felt that the term “Healthcare Provider” could be both exclusory and confusing. So the new name is just Basic Life Support or BLS. You will see this change on our calendar in the coming weeks. Don’t be alarmed if your new BLS card looks a little different, ITS LEGIT!
