Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) builds on the foundation of Basic Life Support (BLS), emphasizing the importance of continuous, high-quality CPR. The hands-on instruction and simulated cases in this advanced course are designed to help enhance their skills in the recognition and intervention of cardiopulmonary arrest immediate post-cardiac arrest, acute arrhythmia, stroke, and acute coronary syndromes. We will teach you all the information you need to successfully manage emergencies such as cardiac arrest, respiratory arrest, heart attack and stroke. This ACLS course is designed for healthcare providers who participate in resuscitation of patients in hospital, medical offices, or in settings where conscious sedation is administered. It covers identification and treatment of patients with medical conditions who are at risk for cardiac arrest, primary and secondary assessment survey and actions needed, algorithms for treatment of emergency situations and effective resuscitation team dynamics. ACLS refers to a set of clinical interventions for the urgent treatment of cardiac arrest, stroke and other life-threatening medical emergencies, as well as the knowledge and skills to deploy those interventions. Although arrhythmia recognition will be reviewed, it is expected that the participant will have a working knowledge of EKG rhythms. Practice with defibrillators and external pacemaker is included. Assessment and care for the patient experiencing an Acute Coronary Syndrome or Stroke will be included in this course. All scenarios are designed for the work place of the individual participant. Our goal is that each participant will feel comfortable in handling life threatening emergencies in their own setting. We structure this class to meet all of the AHA guidelines and requirements. Youll learn the 2020 ACLS Algorithms, drug dosages and usage, how to successfully perform cardioversion, defibrillate and perform external pacing as well as basic CPR, using a bag mask device and an AED. The course includes watching the ACLS full course video, learning stations for BLS, CPR and the use of an AED. You will actively participate in the learning stations for the ACLS algorithms, review of medications used in ACLS, how to manage respiratory emergencies and insert and manage advanced airway devices. You will practice hands on techniques before taking the written exam and the hands on skills testing portion of the class. At the end of the class you will take a written test of 50 questions and successfully perform as a team leader in a case scenario. (You may be assigned an online 50 question test in stead of the traditional paper test.) Skills to be practiced during the course include: -2020 BLS and ACLS Surveys, -CPR Coach, -Airway Management, -Rhythm Recognition, -Defibrillation, -IV and Intraosseous Access, -Use of Medications, -Cardioversion, -Transcutaneous Pacing, -1-rescuer CPR and AED, -Team Resuscitation Concept (Team Leader and Team Member), -Immediate Post-Cardiac Arrest Care, -1-Rescuer CPR and AED use, -Respiratory Arrest, -Peri-arrest Rhythms (Tachycardia, Bradycardia), -Arrest Rhythms (VF, PVT, PEA, Asystole), -Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS), -Stroke Upon successful completion of the ACLS Provider course, students will be issued their AHA ACLS Provider Card via email within 12 to 48 hours.
