All Clinicians working in ICU are expected to have current knowledge of Basic and Advanced Life Care Skills guidelines to revive unresponsive and cardiac arrest patients. This concept is linked with the ability to modify the techniques by keeping abreast with recent advances in this field. The best way is to study synapses of the guidelines from ILCOR, Australian and European Guidelines in Basic Life Support with special considerations arising due to COVID-19 Pandemic.

At a hospital level, Principles of Asepsis, Sterilization, Standard Safety precautions are linked to reduction in Nosocomial Infection and better patient outcome. And that will be our focus in this module.
