BLS Training for Medical Students

In an effort to bolster emergency response skills among future healthcare professionals, the Mountain Medicine Society of Nepal (MMSN) recently organized a Basic Life Support (BLS) training session for third and fourth-year medical students today. The session, attended by 20 students, featured simulated CPR scenarios aimed at providing hands-on experience in managing critical situations.

Integral to the success of the training were pre-test and post-test questionnaires, which gauged participants’ knowledge and skills before and after the session. Encouraging results demonstrated the effectiveness of the training and highlighted its potential for replication across medical colleges in Nepal.
