Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support

This is an advanced course for healthcare professionals who either directly effect or participate in the management of cardiopulmonary arrest or other cardiovascular emergencies and for personnel in emergency response. This course has an emphasis on building Basic life support skills which includes effective chest compressions, use of a bag-mask device, and use of an AED. During this course you will learn: Recognition and management of respiratory and cardiac arrest as well as recognition and early management of pre cardiac arrest conditions such as symptomatic bradycardia and tachycardia.

Skills Enforced:

  • Basic & Advanced Airway management

  • Advanced Vascular Access including I.O Access & Management

  • First line Pharmacology use and knowledge.

  • Recognition & Management of ACS & Stroke

  • Recognition of STEMI & NSTEMI on 4 & 12 lead EKG

  • Recognition of Cardiac Algorithms & Rhythms.

  • Team Building as well as effective leadership skills needed for successful resuscitation.

Experienced Providers: ACLS

The goal of the ACLS EP Course is to improve outcomes in complex cardiovascular, respiratory and other (e.g, metabolic, toxicologic) emergencies by expanding on core ACLS guidelines and encouraging critical thinking and decision making strategies. Through instruction and active participation in case-based scenarios, learners enhance their skills in the differential diagnosis and treatment of prearrest, arrest, and post arrest patients.

Skills Enforced:

  • Ventilator & Advanced Airway management

  • Applying the expanded systematic approach (ACLS EP Survey) to patient assessment, evaluation and management

  • Cardiovascular Emergencies

  • Cerebrovascular Emergencies

  • Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology Emergencies

  • Effective communication within a resuscitation team and recognition of the impact of team dynamics on overall team performance

  • High-Quality CPR

  • Post–Cardiac Arrest Care

  • Respiratory and Metabolic Emergencies
