Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) Refresher Course
August 5, 2022 @ 5:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT$175.00 – $210.00
ACLS Refresher Course
The AHA’s ACLS course is a full-day course that builds on the foundation of lifesaving BLS skills, emphasizing the importance of continuous, high-quality CPR. Reflects science and education from the American Heart Association Guidelines Update for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC).
Students must have a current ACLS Provider card to be eligible to attend.
What does this course teach?
- Basic life support skills, including effective chest compressions, use of a bag-mask device, and use of an AED
- Recognition and early management of respiratory and cardiac arrest
- Recognition and early management of peri-arrest conditions such as symptomatic bradycardia
- Airway management
- Related pharmacology
- Management of ACS and stroke
- Effective communication as a member and leader of a resuscitation team
ACLS is based on simulated clinical scenarios that encourage active, hands-on participation through learning stations where students will practice essential skills individually, as part of a team, and as team leaders. Realistic simulations reinforce the following key concepts: proficiency in basic life support care; recognizing and initiating early management of pre-arrest conditions; 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; and effective resuscitation team dynamics.
Course registrations close 5 days before the course’s scheduled start day. Students must have a current ACLS Provider card to be eligible to attend. Class size limited to 12 participants.
- ACLS Refresher $175
