The ACLS course is designed to provide the knowledge and skills needed to evaluate and manage the adult victim during the peri-arrest period.
Course contents consist of: the recognition and management of respiratory arrest, witnessed and unwitnessed cardiac arrest, brady-and-tachy dysrhythmias, asystole, pulseless electrical activity, acute coronary syndrome and cerebral vascular accidents.
Those eligible to take this course include personnel staffing emergency, intensive or critical care units, EMS providers, physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists and other professionals who may have a need to respond to a cardiovascular emergency.
All those interested may audit the course, but students must be eligible to receive certification before one will be issued by the American Heart Association.
A current CPR card is required.
Please contact the Lifeline office for more information.
