Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) Program
The ACLS Provider Course is designed to teach providers the knowledge and skills needed to evaluate and manage the first ten minutes of an adult VF/VT arrest. Students are expected to learn to manage 10 core ACLS cases: respiratory emergency, four types of cardiac arrest (simple VF/VT, complex VF/VT, PEA, and asystole), four types of prearrest emergencies (bradycardia, stable tachycardia, unstable tachycardia, and acute coronary syndromes), and stroke. An ACLS course completion card is issued to students who successfully pass the written exam and skills test. The one-day renewal program is appropriate for healthcare providers looking to renew their ACLS card.
Audience: Paramedic, RN, NP, PA, or MD.
