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 
  • stroke recog­ni­tion
  • acute coro­nary syndrome
