The ACLS course is designed primarily for healthcare professionals in emergency departments, intensive care units, critical care departments, surgical areas, or pre-hospital environments, such as physicians, nurses, paramedics, respiratory therapists, and other professionals who may respond to a cardiovascular emergency. The ACLS Provider 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, symptomatic bradyarrhythmia, tachyarrhythmia, acute coronary syndrome, and acute ischemic stroke.
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.
ECG & Pharmacology is an excellent course to take prior to ACLS and is recommended for first time ACLS students. If your license or background has not provided you with ECG or Pharmacology training and application, or if you need to review and expand your knowledge, we suggest that you complete the ECG & Pharmacology class prior to taking ACLS for successful completion.
You could also renew your BLS at the end of your ACLS class by taking a BLS test and doing skills. Just advise your instructor the day of your ACLS class.
The ACLS course covers and reinforces the following key concepts:
- Basic life support skills, including effective chest compressions, use of a bag mask device and use of an AED.
- Recognition and early management of respiratory and cardiac arrest.
- Recognition and early management of peri-arrest conditions such as symtomatic bradycardia, svt and ventricular tachycardia with pulses.
- Cardioversion, Defibrillation and Pacing Airway management and confirmation devices.
- Related pharmacology including Atropine, Adenosine, Amiodarone, Epinephrine and Dopamine.
- Management of ischemic chest pain and acute coronary syndromes (ACS) and stroke Effective communication in a resuscitation team atmosphere team.
- Effective Resuscitation, Team Dynamics and post-resuscitation care including therapeutic hypothermia.
