Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) Courses

Description: Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) courses have been developed by the American Heart Association. They emphasize the recognition and treatment of adult (over 10 years of age) cardiac dysrhythmias.

The course is intended for physicians, paramedics, nurses and respiratory therapists.

Course Objectives: The ACLS course is designed to teach participants to manage the first 10 minutes of a witnessed, adult, ventricular fibrillation cardiac arrest. The participant must manage the patient alone for several minutes, performing basic CPR and automated defibrillation. The participant will also learn to direct members of a team to assist in resuscitation.
