BLS for Healthcare Providers. . American Heart Association, 2005 .
Needed this manual to renew my BLS certification. The American Heart Association suggests 3 sources to purchase this item; all charged ridiculous shipping. Paying $7.95 shipping for an $11.00 book? FREE ship at Amazon with super saver shipping. SWEET!! Anyway, the manual is awesome, everything you need to know to get certified in Basic Life Support, and also excellent if you just want to learn how to provide CPR, use an automated external defibrillator, relieve a choking victim. The CD ROM is great for those who like the visual reinforcement of the text. BE AWARE-there are those out there selling the older manuals that do not reflect updates in practice. This is the most current version from 2006. I am guessing the committee will meet in the next couple of years to update if necessary.
