Vital Ethics' ACLS classes are designed for health care providers who either direct or participate in the resuscitation of a patient, whether in or out of hospital. Through the ACLS class, 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.
ACLS is based on simulated clinical scenarios that encourage active, hands-on participation through learning stations where students will practice essential skills individually, as part of a team, and as team leader. Realistic simulations reinforce the following key concepts: proficiency in basic life support care; recognizing and initiating early management of peri-arrest conditions; managing cardiac arrest; identifying and treating ischemic chest pain and acute coronary syndromes; recognizing other life-threatening clinical situations (such as stroke) and providing initial care; ACLS algorithms; and effective resuscitation team dynamics.
Intended Audience: The advanced cardiac life support course is designed for medical providers such as:
and other professionals who may respond to a cardiovascular emergency.
Course Length: Approximately 16 hours (Initial) 8 Hours (refresher), including breaks
The following knowledge and skills are required for successful course completion:
