Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support

Course Description:

The American Heart Association's Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support course is totally redesigned for healthcare providers who either direct or participate in the resuscitation of a patient,whether in or out of hospital. Through the ACLS course, providers will enhance their skills in the treatment of the adult victim of a cardiac arrest or other cardiopulmonary emergencies. ACLS emphasizes the impotance of basic life support CPR to patient suvival; the integration of effective basic life support with advanced cardiovascular life support interventions; and the importance of effective team interaction and communication during resuscitation.

ACLS is based on simulated clinical scenarios taht encouage active , hands-on participation through learning stations where students will practice essential skills individually, as part of a team, and as team leaders. Realistic simulatins reinforce the following keys concepts: proficiency in basic life support care; recognizing and initiating early management of Pre-Arrst conditions; managing cardiac arrest; identifying and treating ischemic chest pain and cute coronary syndromes; recognizing other life-threating clinical situations(such as stroke(such as stroke) and providinf intial care; ACLS algorithms; and effective resuscitation team dynamics.

Course Content & Modules:

  • Defibrillation.                                
  • Airway Management.     
  • Rhythm Recognition.     
  • IV access.    
  • Use of medications.     
  • Cardioversion.    
  • Transcutaneous pacing
  • 1- rescuer, CPR, AED.    
  • Effective resuscitation team dynamics.

Features & Benefits:

  • Healthcare providers will enhance their skills in the treatment of the adult victim of a cardiac arrest or other cardiopulmonary emergencies.
  • ACLS emphasizes the importance of basic life support CPR to patient survival; the integration of effective basic life support with advanced cardiovascular life support interventions; and the importance of effective team interaction and communication during resuscitation.
  • Students engage in simulated clinical scenarios that encourage active, hands-on participation throughlearning stations where students will practice essential skills individually, part of a team, and as team leader.

Realistic simulations reinforce the following key concepts:

  • Proficiency in basic life support care 
  • Recognizing and initiating early management of peri-arrest condition
  • Managing cardiac arrest 
  • Identifying and treating ischemic chest pain and acute coronary syndromes
  • recognizing other life-threatening clinical situations(such as stroke)and providing initial care
  • ACLS algorithms 
  • Effective resuscitation team dynamics.
  • Written Exam & Skill Stations:

    The candidate is evaluated through a written exam and practical skill test.
