It is essential to understand that the objective of BLS is not to ‘treat’ the person but to buy some valuable time until the emergency medical aid arrives. BLS procedure is mainly used on people experiencing cardiac arrest or respiratory failure.

Basic first aid helps ensure that the right methods of administering medical assistance are provided. Knowing how to help a person is just as crucial in emergencies. It only takes six minutes for the human brain to expire due to lack of oxygen.
