Basic Life Support in Obstetrics
BLSO is a one-day course that offers evidence-based, hands-on workshops with mnemonics and case-based discussions that can play an important role in promoting teamwork. Pre-hospital resuscitation, communication in transit and transition to hospital care can be improved when pre-hospital and hospital providers share a conceptual framework.

Serve as Faculty at a BLSO Course
Teaching in a BLSO course does not count toward the requirement of teaching in three courses every five years to maintain the ALSO Approved Instructor status. But, please know that the need for instructors for BLSO courses is great and your involvement is very much appreciated by the ALSO Advisory Board and staff.
