ACLS Training

acls_bookThe ACLS course provides the knowledge and skills needed to evaluate and manage the first 10 minutes of an adult ventricular fibrillation/ventricular tachycardia (VF/VT) arrest.

ACLS is based on simulated clinical scenarios that encourage active, hands-on participation through learning stations at which students will practice essential skills individually, as part of a team, and as the team leader.

Realistic simulations reinforce the following key concepts:

  • the importance of basic life support care for patient survival
  • the integration of effective basic life support with advanced cardiovascular life support interventions
  • recognizing and initiating early management of pedi-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
  • effective team interaction and communication during resuscitation

The ACLS course covers:

  • defibrillation
  • airway management
  • rhythm recognition
  • IV access
  • use of medications
  • cardioversion
  • transcutaneous pacing
  • 1-rescuer CPR, AED

ACLS training is intended for healthcare providers who either direct or participate in the resuscitation of a patient, whether in or out of the hospital, including:

  • physicians
  • nurses
  • emergency medical technicians
  • paramedics
  • respiratory therapists
  • staff in intensive care units and emergency or critical care departments
  • other professionals who may respond to a cardiovascular emergency

Students must pass a written exam and skills test in order to qualify for an ACLS Course Completion Card.

Course length is approximately 13.5 hours.
