This class is designed for participants seeking ACLS certification for the first-time or whose current ACLS Provider card has passed the recommended renewal date.
The American Heart Association ACLS course is totally redesigned to incorporate new science evidence from the 2010 Guidelines and a new teaching methodology. Through the ACLS course, healthcare providers will enhance their skills in the treatment of the adult victim of a cardiac arrest or other cardiopulmonary emergencies. ACLS emphasizes the importance of basic life support CPR to patient survival; the integration of effective basic life support with advanced cardiovascular life support interventions; and the importance of effective team interaction and communication during resuscitation. Each participant is evaluated individually on his/her ability to demonstrate core course knowledge and skills. This course will prepare you to work as a team member and team leader in a code situation. Course evaluation methods include a skill and practical evaluation using core-based scenarios and an evaluation of the participant's knowledge as measured by a written examination.
Students must be proficient in the following prior to attending the course: •Performing BLS CPR using the 2010 AHA Guidelines for CPR & ECC •Reading and interpreting ECGs •Understanding ACLS pharmacology •Performing the BLS Primary Survey and the ACLS Secondary Survey Course cost does not include the current ACLS Student Manual which is required to have prior to the course.
