Hey! Hey! Are you okay?
By Dr. Jean C. Arevalo

The UP College of Dentistry Faculty attended an American Heart Association (AHA) Life Support Course – BASIC LIFE SUPPORT (BLS) COURSE, provided by the Academy of Emergency Sciences (AES), last April 11, 2018 at the UPCD.
The AHA continuously updates and publishes resuscitation guidelines which set the standard for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) protocols around the world and make up the basis for the AHA courses used to educate millions of healthcare professionals each year. AHA Life Support courses teach the latest and most effective resuscitation practices using the best techniques in instruction and simulation. Our commitment to quality training makes AHA the certification of choice for hospitals both here and abroad.
