overview

Both of these cours­es allow for stu­dent inter­ac­tion, hands on expe­ri­ence, and the ask­ing of ques­tions, in a class­room and small group envi­ron­ment. This ACLS Course has been updat­ed to reflect new sci­ence in the 2015 Amer­i­can Heart Asso­ci­a­tion Guide­lines Update for CPR and Emer­gency Car­dio­vas­cu­lar Care. This course builds on the foun­da­tion of life­sav­ing BLS skills, empha­siz­ing the impor­tance of con­tin­u­ous, high-qual­i­ty CPR. The course high­lights the impor­tance of the fol­low­ing skills:

  • intraosseous can­nu­la­tion
  • rapid assess­ment skills 
  • high-per­for­mance team dynamics 
  • air­way and res­pi­ra­to­ry management 
  • com­mu­ni­ca­tion
  • phar­ma­col­o­gy
  • sys­tems of care 
  • recog­ni­tion and inter­ven­tion of car­diopul­monary arrest 
  • imme­di­ate post-car­diac arrest
  • acute dys­rhyth­mia recog­ni­tion and management
