The American Heart Association Advanced Life Support (ACLS) is designed for healthcare providers who either direct or participate in the resuscitation of patients, whether in or out of the hospital. Participants will enhance their skills in the treatment of the adult victim of a cardiac arrest or other cardiopulmonary emergency. ACLS emphasizes the importance of basic life support to patient survival, the integration of effective basic life support with advanced cardiovascular life support interventions, and the importance of effective team interactions and communications during emergency events. Active participation in a series of simulated cardiopulmonary cases and megacodes reinforces course material. Each participant must review pharmacology and EKG’s prior to the course. The interpretation of EKG’s is not covered in this course. To enroll participants must have a current AHA BLS for HCP card.
Prerequisite: Students must either have taken HTH-6650 or present a current American Heart Association BLS for HCP card.
