BASIC LIFE SUPPORT (BLS) AND FIRST AID TRAINING LEVEL 1
Basic Life Support (BLS) is a specific set of procedures for preventing the condition of lifeless (non-breathing) casualties from worsening until they can access advanced care (usually an ambulance). Typically, this is CPR and the treatment for choking.
First aid is any medical care provided by a non-professional in an emergency. In the most serious cases, the correct first aid is Basic Life Support, but there are other cases that require other first aid.
For example, a first aider needs to know how to handle some trauma, for example, a fractured leg, which is non-life-threatening (usually). This is outside of the scope of what Basic Life Support covers.
In some cases, like minor cuts, first aid is the only medical treatment that is needed.
