Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS)
Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support “ACLS” is an advanced, instructor-led classroom course that highlights the importance of team dynamics and communication, systems of care and immediate post-cardiac arrest care for adult populations. In this class participants learn airway management, related pharmacology and EKG rhythm identification.
This training is geared towards medical professionals and prepares the provider to respond to cardiac arrest, bradycardia and tachycardia emergency situations. Participants are strongly encouraged to have a working knowledge in EKG interpretation, cardiac medications and the systems of care in an emergency setting. The skills are taught in large and small group sessions with testing stations with case-based scenarios completed by each participant. An ACLS Provider Manual is required to take this course. The class covers BLS curriculum and participants can earn a BLS certification.
This ACLS initial course is 16 hours and is completed in a hybrid format with the Heartcode ACLS followed with a skills check is required for the hands on portion of the class at the Training Center.. The ACLS renewal class is an 8 hour hands-on class with didactic lecture in the morning followed by skills in the afternoon.
