Society for Emergency Medicine India (SEMI) has successfully launched the first set of National Basic Life Support (NBLS) courses on 28th October 2018, in Hyderabad city.
This great launch was assisted by emergency medicine departments of multiple hospitals in Hyderabad. Teams of life-support instructors conducted NBLS sessions for non-healthcare personnel at multiple locations, and trained more than 1500 people in just 2 weeks. NBLS is part of SEMI initiative to bring awareness in common public about emergency conditions and to train them to identify, act immediately before reaching to emergency experts/hospitals.
SEMI recommends all the emergency medicine departments in the country to conduct NBLS uniformly and periodically to build the community trust in the emergency care.
