Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support
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).
- Course uses learning stations for practice of essential skills simulated clinical scenarios that encourage Active participation
- Hands-on class format reinforces skills proficiency
- Classroom-based works well for learners who prefer group interaction and instructor feedback while learning skills
HeartCode® ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) is a blended learning format that combines online classroom training with in-person skills training to reduce the actual in-person classroom time to less than 6-hours (full in-person classroom courses are 2-day courses). To enter the course, students 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.
COURSE FORMAT / TIME
Blended Learning (online portion, followed by hands-on session)
The online portion can be completed in 6 ½ to 7 hours, depending on the student’s level of experience. The hands-on session for HeartCode ACLS will take approximately 5 hours without breaks.
