Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) Provider Class
The ACLS Provider Initial Course is designed for healthcare providers who either direct or participate in the management of cardiopulmonary arrest or other cardiovascular emergencies. Through didactic instruction and active participation in simulated cases, students will enhance their skills in the recognition and intervention of cardiopulmonary arrest, acute arrhythmia, stoke, and acute coronary syndromes (ACS). The ACLS Initial Course is recommended for students taking ACLS for the first time and/or for students that have expired ACLS cards.
The American Heart Association ACLS Course highlights three major concepts:
1. The crucial importance of high-quality CPR
2. The integration of effective BLS with ACLS interventions
3. The importance of effective team interaction and communication during resuscitation
The course is designed to provide students the opportunity to practice and demonstrate proficiency in the following skills used in resuscitation:
· Systematic approach
· High quality CPR
· Airway Management
· Rhythm recognition
· Intravenous (IV/intraosseous (IO) access (information only)
· Use of medications
· Transcutaneous pacing
· Team dynamics
Students will practice the application of these and other skills in simulated cases and will practice both team leader and team member roles. The American Heart Association requires students to have the current ACLS Provider Manual available for use before, during, and after the course. These manuals can be purchased online or at Heartbeat Certifications.
