The American Heart Associations's two day course based on the assessment and management of the peri-arrest and cardiac arrest adult patient.
This course is for healthcare providers who either direct or participate in the management of cardiac arrest and other cardiovascular emergencies. This includes, but is not limited to, physicians, nurses, paramedics and respiratory therapists. This course may be a requirement for those in the healthcare setting.
This two day, classroom-based course reflecting the new science from the 2015 American Heart Association Guideline for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care focuses on the assessment and management of the acute MI, CVA, and cardiac arrest adult patient. In a learner friendly, hands-on environment, participants will complete a series of lectures and learning stations covering management of the airway, respiratory failure/arrest, peri-arrest conditions, ACS, stroke and cardiac arrest as well as effective resuscitation team dynamics. Upon successful completion, participants will receive an ACLS Course Completion Card from the American Heart Association as well as EMT/Paramedic CE (if applicable).
