Basic Life Support (BLS) is a level of medical care which is used for victims of life-threatening illnesses or injuries until they can be given full medical care at a hospital. It can be provided by trained medical personnel, including emergency medical technicians, paramedics and by laypersons who have received BLS training.

Chahal Hospital provides monthly training to all the staff.

  • Check the responsiveness of the victim
  • Call for Emergency medical health
  • Position victim on his or her back
