ACLS ADVANCED CARDIAC LIFE SUPPORT (ACLS) - CLASSROOM American Heart Association Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) is an advanced, instructor-led classroom course that highlights the importance of team dynamics and communication, systems of care and immediate post-cardiac-arrest care. They also cover airway management and related pharmacology. In this classroom-based course, providers enhance their skills in treating adult victims of cardiac arrest or other cardiopulmonary emergencies, while earning their American Heart Association ACLS Providers Course Completion Card.
To take the ACLS Class each student must have their own provider manual for use before, during and after the class. You must purchase the current provider manual and bring it with you to class. The current provider manual is the 2010 Guidelines. The book can be purchased from a number of places online such as E-bay, Valore books and Amazon. You are free to purchase the book from whomever you choose. The provider manual is not included in the cost of the course.
The AHA Advanced Cardiac Life Support ACLS Course is designed for healthcare providers who conduct or participates 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. 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. The Advanced Cardiac Life Support, or ACLS Course also teaches management of acute coronary syndromes (ACS) and stroke, the management of respiratory and cardiac arrest, CPR, effective chest compressions and ventilation with a bag mask device (BVM) and the use of an AED (Automated External Defibrillator).
ACLS is designed for healthcare professionals who either direct or participate in the management of cardiopulmonary arrest and other cardiovascular emergencies. This includes personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care and critical care units.
