AHA’s ACLS Course has been updated to reflect new science in the 2015 American Heart Association Guidelines Update for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care. This course builds on the foundation of lifesaving BLS skills, emphasizing the importance of continuous, high-quality CPR.

This advanced course highlights the importance of high-performance team dynamics and communication, systems of care, recognition and intervention of cardiopulmonary arrest, immediate post-cardiac arrest, acute dysrhythmia, stroke, and acute coronary syndromes (ACS).

HeartCode® ACLS is a self-directed, comprehensive eLearning program that uses eSimulation technology to allow students to assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings. To enter the course, students must complete a precourse self-assessment. Students will then be presented with a team dynamics lesson and 10 In-hospital patient cases, including a BLS case and 2 megacode cases.

Upon successful completion of all the patient cases, students must pass the written exam with a score of 84%. Students then are able to attend the hands-on session required for full course completion.

 

 

The BLS Course trains participants to promptly recognize several life-threatening emergencies, give high-quality chest compressions, deliver appropriate ventilations and provide early use of an AED.

In the Instructor-led course, students participate in simulated clinical scenarios and learning stations. Students work with an AHA BLS Instructor to complete BLS skills practice and skills testing. Students also complete a written exam.

 

Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS)

The AHA’s PALS Course has been updated to reflect new science in the 2015 AHA Guidelines Update for CPR and ECC. This classroom, Instructor-led course uses a series of videos and simulated pediatric emergencies to reinforce the important concepts of a systematic approach to pediatric assessment, basic life support, PALS treatment algorithms, effective resuscitation, and team dynamics. The goal of the PALS Course is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children, resulting in improved outcomes.

Features

•Classroom-based courses work well for learners who prefer group interaction and instructor feedback while learning

•Course includes realistic, clinical scenarios that encourage active participation – delivered through actual pediatric patient videos and lifelike simulations

•Course is comprehensive and includes our systematic approach to assess and treat pediatric patients in emergency situations

•Course uses a hands-on class format to reinforce skills proficiency

•Co-branded with the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)

Course Content

•High-quality Child CPR AED and Infant CPR

•Recognition of patients who do and do not require immediate intervention

•Recognition of cardiopulmonary arrest early and application of CPR within 10 seconds

•Apply team dynamics

•Differentiation between respiratory distress and failure

•Early interventions for respiratory distress and failure

•Differentiation between compensated and decompensated (hypotensive) shock

•Early interventions for the treatment of shock

•Differentiation between unstable and stable patients with arrhythmias

•Clinical characteristics of instability in patients with arrhythmias

•Post–cardiac arrest management

AHA HeartCode PALS

The AHA’s HeartCode PALS Course has been updated to reflect new science in the 2015 AHA Guidelines Update for CPR and ECC.

This eLearning course is the self-directed online portion of HeartCode PALS blended learning, which is followed by a hands-on session for skills practice and testing.

HeartCode PALS is a comprehensive program that uses a series of videos and simulated pediatric emergencies to reinforce the important concepts of a systematic approach to pediatric assessment, basic life support, PALS treatment algorithms, effective resuscitation, and team dynamics.  Using eSimulation technology, students can assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings. In this environment, students also apply their knowledge to real-time decision-making and skills development. Debriefings and coaching are provided immediately after each simulation to facilitate learning.

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to

•Perform high-quality Child CPR AED and Infant CPR per AHA BLS recommendations

•Differentiate between patients who do and do not require immediate intervention

•Recognize cardiopulmonary arrest early and begin CPR within 10 seconds

•Apply team dynamics

•Differentiate between respiratory distress and failure

•Perform early interventions for respiratory distress and failure

•Differentiate between compensated and decompensated (hypotensive) shock

•Perform early interventions for the treatment of shock

•Differentiate between unstable and stable patients with arrhythmias

•Describe clinical characteristics of instability in patients with arrhythmias

•Implement post–cardiac arrest management

Students who successfully complete the PALS Course online (including achieving a score of 84% or higher on the course exam) and the hands-on session will receive a PALS Provider course completion card (print or eCard), valid for two years.

100% classroom training means students are with an AHA instructor for their entire learning experience.

Heartsaver® CPR AED:Registration is complete and your course date and time is confirmed.
Class duration varies due to student number and experience.  eCards are issued soon after successful completion of entire course.
Please email the Course Completion Certificate prior to the session.
The Course Completion Certificate must be verified prior to skills session in order to receive card soon following successful completion of the skills session.
 
We look forward to welcoming you.
If you have any questions about the course, please contact the instructor or Training Site Coordinator

is a video-based, instructor-led course that teaches adult and child CPR and AED use, infant CPR, and how to relieve choking in adults, children, and infants. This course teaches skills with the AHA’s research-proven practice-while-watching technique, which allows instructors to observe the students, provide feedback, and guide the students’ learning of skills.
