HLTAID010 Provide basic emergency life support

The HLTAID010 Provide basic emergency life support course is the NEW updated version of this course, replacing the superseded HLTAID002 Provide basic emergency life support from 2021. 

Having the skills, knowledge, and confidence to recognise and respond to life-threatening emergencies can save a person’s life!  

In this first aid course, you will learn these first aid skills in line with legal, workplace and community considerations, Australian Resuscitation Council guidelines and other Australian national peak clinical bodies.  

The course covers assessing the casualty, providing safety, accessing emergency services, and using resources to provide first aid, such as providing CPR and using a defibrillator, administering an autoinjector for anaphylaxis, administering asthma medication, assisting someone choking, managing casualties with non-life-threatening bleeding and shock.

You will learn basic anatomy, physiology and the differences between adults, children and infants relating to CPR, and the importance of the chain of survival. Also, conveying accurate details when handing the casualty over to emergency services, reviewing an incident to improve own skills and response times, recognise psychological impacts from the incident, and seeking help as required.
