Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support 

 

ACLS builds on the foundation of lifesaving basic life support (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).

 

After successfully completing the ACLS course, students should be able to:

  • Apply the BLS, Primary, and Secondary Assessments sequence for a systematic evaluation of adult patients

  • Perform prompt, high-quality BLS, including prioritizing early chest compressions and integrating early automated external defibrillator (AED) use

  • Recognize and perform early management of respiratory arrest

  • Discuss early recognition and management of ACS and stroke, including appropriate disposition

  • Recognize and perform early management of bradyarrhythmias and tachyarrhythmias that may result in cardiac arrest or complicate resuscitation outcome

  • Recognize and perform early management of cardiac arrest until termination of resuscitation or transfer of care, including immediate post-cardiac-arrest care

  • Model effective communication as a member or leader of a high-performance team

  • Evaluate resuscitative efforts during a cardiac arrest through continuous assessment of CPR quality, monitoring the patient's physiologic response, and delivering real-time feedback to the team

  • Recognize the impact of team dynamics on overall team performance

  • Discuss how the use of a rapid response team or medical emergency team may improve patient outcomes

  • Define systems of care.

Pediatric Advanced Life Support 

 

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

Who typically takes this course:

  • Physicians, Nurses, Physician Assistants, Staff working in intensive care units or emergency/critical care depts

  • Paramedics, EMTs

  • Dentists/Oral Surgeons

ACLS & PALS

American Heart Association

Advanced Cardiopulmonary Life Support (ACLS) is designed for healthcare professionals who either direct or participate in the management of cardiopulmonary arrest and other cardiovascular emergencies. This includes personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care and critical care units.  GatorCPR offers ACLS certification in a classroom environment or American Heart Association ACLS Online Certifications. 

 

Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) is for healthcare providers who respond to emergencies in infants and children. These include personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care and critical care units such as physicians, nurses, paramedics and others who need a PALS course completion card for job or other requirements..  GatorCPR offers PALS certification through American Heart Association PALS Online Certifications.

Classroom-based Learning is entirely Instructor-led. Students complete the entire course in one video-based session with an instructor, which covers content, skills practice and testing.

  • Hands-on instruction with an American Heart Association Instructor allows students to practice skills and ask questions throughtout the course.

  • Students complete their training in a single convenient session. 

  • Ideal for students with limited acces to technology. 

  • Students keep their provider manual for ongoing future reference.

blended/online LEARNING

Blended learning combines self-paced online training with an Instructor-led classroom session. Students first learn the course content online using HeartCode ACLS or PALS. After passing the included online exam, they attend an Instructor-led, video-based classroom portion focused on skills practice, debriefing, team scenarios, discussions of local protocols, and skills testing.

  • The online portion allows students to complete exercises and learn at their own pace.

  • The classroom portion allows time for practice and discussion.

  • Students have access to HeartCode ACLS or PASL for 24 months after activation, allowing them to revisit simulations and videos after they complete the course.

ACLS

Blended/Online

The American Heart Association’s HeartCode ACLS Course, web-based and accessible 24 hours a day, provides a flexible, blended alternative to traditional classroom training. This online instructional program builds on the foundation of lifesaving BLS and uses the latest eSimulation technology to enable students to assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings. Students apply their knowledge to real-time decision making and skills development, and receive debriefings and coaching immediately after each simulation. After completing the online portion, students attend a hands-on session to test their skills with an AHA Instructor or on a voice-assisted manikin (VAM).
