Basic life support (BLS) is a basic level of medical care used to help sustain a person who is experiencing cardiac arrest or respiratory failure until they can be given full medical care by an advanced responder. BLS can be used in any scenario where breathing or heartbeat has been compromised

Step 1.4 - Activate emergency response system
Step 2 - Assess vital signs
Step 2.1 - Assess circulation
Step 2.2 - Assess breathing
Step 2.3 - Assess next course of action
Step 3 - Perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
Step 3.1 - Chest compressions
Step 3.2 - Ventilation
Step 3.3 - Fetch defibrillator
Step 4 - Defibrillation
Step 4.1 - Position the defibrillator
