Advanced Cardiac Life Support ACLS skills session is the hands-on portion of an AHA eLearning course that includes Heartcode Parts 2 and 3 skills practice and testing.

This class is for those who have taken the Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) Heartcode Part 1 online course but still need the hands or practice and testing portion of the class called an ACLS Skills Session.

This is also known as the Heartcode ACLS Parts 2 and 3. Part 2 is the hands on practice session, and Part 3 is the testing portion. To come to this class you need to complete the Heartcode ACLS Part 1 online testing and bring that certificate with you to class.

Heartcode Part 2 consists of hands on practice Heartcode Part 3 is testing. You may ask the instructor questions and practice until you are comfortable, before being tested.

You will be tested on your BLS Skills for 1 and 2 person rescuer on an adult and the use of an AED and 1 Megacode Scenario as well as one Bag-Mask Ventilation Scenario.

The cost of this class is $100. Please register and pay for the class at: http://www.savingamericanhearts.com/ahaacacalisu4.html

What is an ACLS Skills Test Like ?

You will first practice and then be tested on:

1). A Bag-Mask Ventilation Scenario

2). 1 Rescuer Adult CPR with a bag mask and AED

3). One Megacode scenario Here are the details of each:

ACLS Bag Mask Ventilation Testing Checklist:

BLS Survey and Interventions

STEP 1: Student Checks for responsiveness * Taps and shouts, "Are you alright ?" * Scans the chest for movement (5-10 seconds)

STEP 2: Student activates the emergency response system and gets the AED OR Directs second rescuer to activate the emergency response system and get the AED

STEP 3: Checks carotid pulse (5-10 seconds) Notes that pulse is present Does not initiate chest compressions or attach AED Performs ventilations at the correct rate of 1 breath every 5-6 seconds (10-12 breaths per minute) with a bag-mask device Inserts oropharyngeal or nasopharyngeal airway Administers oxygen Performs correct bag-mask ventilation for 1 minute Gives proper ventilation-rate and volume

END OF BAG MASK VENTILATION SKILLS CHECK

 

ACLS CPR TESTING CHECKLIST

STEP 1: Student Checks for responsiveness * Taps and shouts, "Are you alright ?" * Scans the chest for movement (5-10 seconds)

STEP 2: Tells someone to activate the emergency response system and get the AED

STEP 3: Checks carotid pulse (minimum 5 seconds: maximum 10 seconds)

STEP 4: Bares patient's chest and locates CPR hand position

STEP 5: Delivers first cycle of compressions at correct rate (acceptable: 18 seconds or less for 30 compressions)

STEP 6: Gives 2 breaths each over 1 second

STEP 7: Delivers second cycle of compressions at correct hand position (acceptable: greater than 23 of 30 compressions)

STEP 8: Gives 2 breaths (1 second each) with visible chest rise

END OF ACLS CPR TESTING SKILLS CHECK

 

ACLS MEGACODE TESTING CHECKLIST THERE ARE 6 DIFFERENT MEGACODE SCENARIOS YOU ONLY HAVE TO SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETE 1
