New 2015 Science Guidelines Courses:

The American Heart Association will be rolling out the new course material based on the new 2015 Science Guidelines throughout 2016.  You will notice in the class desciptions (below) there are duplicate class names that are labeled (2015GL-IM) & (2015GL).  The classes labeled with (2015GL-IM) are classes based on the old 2010 course material with additional 2015 "Interim Material" and taught to the new 2015 guidelines.  The classes labeled with 2015GL are classes based on the new 2015 Science Guidelines and will have new 2015 course material available (no interim material required).

2015 Guidelines Advanced Cardiac Life Support - (2) Day First Time or Expired Certification Course


Product Description

IMPORTANT: The expectation coming into an ACLS FULL course is that you can recognize EKG rhythms. Rhythm interpretation is NOT covered in this course. If you cannot recognize basic rhythms or if this is your 1st time taking an ACLS course, it is strongly recommended that you take the AHA ECG course PRIOR to attending an ACLS course. 

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; and recognition of and intervention in cardiopulmonary arrest, immediate post-cardiac arrest, acute dysrhythmia, stroke, and acute coronary syndromes (ACS).

The ACLS course is designed for healthcare professionals who either direct or participate in the management of cardiopulmonary arrest or other cardiovascular emergencies. This includes personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care, and critical care units -- such as physicians, nurses, and paramedics -- as well as others who need an ACLS course completion card for job or other requirements.

Before taking the ACLS course, students must pass the online ACLS Precourse Self-Assessment with a score of 70% or higher. This test is part of the ACLS student Web site (access granted with purchase of the ACLS Provider Manual).

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 outcomes
  • 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.


For successful course completion, students must:

  • Demonstrate skills competency in all learning stations
  • Pass the high-quality BLS skills test
  • Pass the bag-mask ventilation with OPA/NPA insertion skills test
  • Pass the Megacode test
  • Pass the ACLS exam with a score of 84% or higher.

2015 Guidelines Advanced Cardiac Life Support - Update (Renewal)

Product Description

Prerequisite: Must be able to identify basic rhythms (See Optional Learn Rhythm Adult eLearning program below)

 

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; and recognition of and intervention in cardiopulmonary arrest, immediate post-cardiac arrest, acute dysrhythmia, stroke, and acute coronary syndromes (ACS).

The ACLS course is designed for healthcare professionals who either direct or participate in the management of cardiopulmonary arrest or other cardiovascular emergencies. This includes personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care, and critical care units -- such as physicians, nurses, and paramedics -- as well as others who need an ACLS course completion card for job or other requirements.

Before taking the ACLS course, students must pass the online ACLS Precourse Self-Assessment with a score of 70% or higher. This test is part of the ACLS student Web site (access granted with purchase of the ACLS Provider Manual).

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 outcomes
  • 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.


For successful course completion, students must:

  • Demonstrate skills competency in all learning stations
  • Pass the high-quality BLS skills test
  • Pass the bag-mask ventilation with OPA/NPA insertion skills test
  • Pass the Megacode test
  • Pass the ACLS exam with a score of 84% or higher.

Primary Audience

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


Expired Certification Cards

Contrary to popular belief, there is no "grace period" for expired cards.  For example; if your card expires May 2015, then June 1st your card is considered expired.  What the American Heart Association states about expired cards is, it is up to the discretion of the Training Center Coordinator if a student with an expired card can attend an update/renewal course.  If the TC Coordinator allows a student with an expired card to attend an update/renewal course, they will not be allowed remediation.  Remediation is; If someone does not pass their written test with an 84% or higher the material would be reviewed with the student and they have the option of taking an alternate version of the test.  This is also true of the megacode hand-on testing phase.  This is only true if someone has a non-expired certification card.  If your card has expired, you would not be allowed remediation.  If you receive an 84% or less on the written exam or fail any part of the megacode hands-on testing phase you would need to repeat the course and pay the course fee again.

Course Completion Card (Course Completion Card) - NO WAITING!

Upon successful course completion, including demonstration of skills competency and a written test, students receive a course completion card, valid for two years. This card will be issued immediately upon successful completion of the course, no waiting for card to arrive in the mail.

General Overview

This item is the student manual for taking the PALS course in a classroom-based format. Manual is based on the 2015 American Heart Association Guidelines for CPR and ECC.

Course Overview

The goal of the PALS course is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children, resulting in improved outcomes. The PALS 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 PALS course is designed for healthcare professionals who either direct or participate in the management of respiratory and/or cardiovascular emergencies and cardiopulmonary arrest in pediatric patients. This includes personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care, and critical care units -- such as physicians, nurses, and paramedics -- as well as others who need a PALS course completion card for job or other requirements.

Before taking the PALS course, students must pass the online PALS Precourse Self-Assessment.  It is recommended that you get at least a score of 80% or higher. 

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

  • Perform high-quality child CPR AED and infant CPR per American Heart Association basic life support recommendations
  • Differentiate between patients who do and patients who do not require immediate intervention
  • Recognize cardiopulmonary arrest early, and begin CPR within 10 seconds
  • Apply team dynamics
  • Differentiate between respiratory distress and respiratory failure, and perform early interventions for both
  • Differentiate between compensated and decompensated (hypotensive) shock, and 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.

Upon successful completion of the course, including achieving a score of 84% or higher on the course exam, students receive a PALS course completion card that is valid for two years.

EXPIRED CERTIFICATION CARDS

Contrary to popular belief, there is no "grace period" for expired cards.  For example; if your card expires May 2015, then June 1st your card is considered expired.  What the American Heart Association states about expired cards is, it is up to the discretion of the Training Center Coordinator if a student with an expired card can attend an update/renewal course.  If the TC Coordinator allows a student with an expired card to attend an update/renewal course, they will not be allowed remediation.  Remediation is; If someone does not pass their written test with an 84% or higher the material would be reviewed with the student and they have the option of taking an alternate version of the test.  This is also true of the megacode hand-on testing phase.  This is only true if someone has a non-expired certification card.  If your card has expired, you would not be allowed remediation.  If you receive an 84% or less on the written exam or fail any part of the megacode hands-on testing phase you would need to repeat the course and pay the course fee again.


American Heart Association Course Completion Card - NO WAITING!

Upon successful course completion, including demonstration of skills competency and a written test, students receive a course completion Card, valid for two years. This Card will be issued immediately upon successful completion of the course, no waiting for card to arrive in the mail.

 Product Description

2015GL BLS Heartcode
  

 
2015GL Basic Life Support for Healthcare Provider (BLS) Heartcode ONLINE Course (Recertification)
This course is PC and MAC compatible
 
Why is there a price increase in this new 2015GL BLS skills program?

The American Heart Association released the new 2015 Guidelines BLS Heartcode program & Accelerated HeartCode BLS Competency Agenda on 05/31/16.  The accelerated skills testing session time increased from ~30 minutes to 70 minutes and new manikins with instrumented directive feedback were added to facilitate the accelerated skills testing session.  These mandated changes directly impact the cost of this course.
 

Why is this 2015GL BLS Heartcode skills program "accelerated"?
 
"Recognizing that many students who complete the online portion of HeartCode BLS blended learning come to the skills performance session with some level of competency, the American Heart Association has created an accelerated agenda for students who believe they can demonstrate mastery of the skills associated with high-quality CPR. This competency-focused agenda is called the Accelerated HeartCode BLS Competency Agenda, and it allows a learner to demonstrate competency and thus potentially shorten the time required to complete the instructor-led hands-on portion of HeartCode BLS. "
 
The standard skills testing syllabus runs 2.25 hours and the accelerated syllabus runs ~70 minutes.  We run the Accelerated HeartCode BLS Competency Agenda only.  For those who feel they need more practice than this syllabus allows, we recommend they take the traditional classroom BLS Provider course.

 

BLS Heartcode Accelerated Syllabus

Educational Critical Care Concepts, LLC offers BLS Heartcode w/ Accelerated Skills Courses which provide a flexible training option for busy healthcare professionals. The complete course is delivered in three parts. Part 1 delivers the cognitive learning through Web-based, self-paced modules. Parts 2 and 3 require students to meet with an Educational Critical Care Concepts, LLC AHA Instructor to complete a hands-on skills practice session and a skills test. Upon successful completion of all three parts, students receive their BLS Provider Course Completion Card. This course is an ideal option for healthcare providers seeking an alternative to traditional classroom training for first-time or renewal certification.

How does the 2015GL BLS Heartcode with accelerated skills session work ?

Once you enroll in the 2015GL BLS Heartcode with Accelerated Skills program we will send you an email with your keycode and directions on how to access the program. There will be a link in the email that takes you to the American Heart Association website where you will create an account for yourself.  Next, you will click on Activate a Key, you will copy the keycode we sent you in the email onto their site and this will give you access to the online program.  Complete the online program at your own pace, start and stop as much as you like, the program will remember where you left off when you return.  Once you are through all of the required modules, you will need to take the test at the end.  You will have (2) attempts to pass the program (84% or better).  Once completed, just print your course completion certificate and bring it with you to your accelerated hands-on practice/testing session. You will next attend a 70 minute accelerated AHA instructor lead BLS Heartcode skills session.  In this session, you will perform hands-on skills practice for airway, compressions, 1-rescuer/2-rescuer CPR for Adult, Child & Infant using instrumented directive feedback manikins.  After the practice session, you will perform your hands-on testing for Adult & Infant 1 & 2 rescuer CPR.

YOU MUST COMPLETE THE HANDS-ON PRACTICE/TESTING SESSION WITHIN 60 DAYS 

This course replaces the BLS for Healthcare Providers Online Part 1 (#90-1403), HeartCode BLS Part 1 (#90-1404), and BLS for Prehospital Providers Online (#90-1433) 2010 Guidelines courses.

HeartCode BLS uses the latest eSimulation technology to enable students to assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings. Utilizing a variety of eLearning assets such as dramatizations, eSimulations, animations, self-directed learning, and interactive activities, this course teaches BLS knowledge and skills.  This method of learning provides training consistency, adaptability to different learning styles, and flexibility for the student’s and employer’s time. Students can work at their own pace applying their knowledge to real-time decision making and skills development. Blended training also supports the need for hands-on learning of psychomotor skills. Debriefings and coaching are provided immediately after each simulation.

Once the cognitive portion of the course has been completed, students practice and test their skills with an AHA Instructor utilizing instrumented directive feedback manikins.

After successfully completing both the eLearning and hands-on session of the BLS Course, students should be able to:

Product Description

  

 
2015GL Accelerated HeartCode BLS Competency ONLY
NO ONLINE ACCESS KEYCODE PROVIDED - SKILLS SESSION ONLY 
 
Why is there a price increase in this new 2015GL BLS skills program?

The American Heart Association released the new 2015 Guidelines BLS Heartcode program & Accelerated HeartCode BLS Competency Agenda on 05/31/16.  The accelerated skills testing session time increased from ~30 minutes to 70 minutes and new manikins with instrumented directive feedback were added to facilitate the accelerated skills testing session.  These mandated changes directly impact the cost of this course.
 

Why is this 2015GL BLS Heartcode skills program "accelerated"?
 
"Recognizing that many students who complete the online portion of HeartCode BLS blended learning come to the skills performance session with some level of competency, the American Heart Association has created an accelerated agenda for students who believe they can demonstrate mastery of the skills associated with high-quality CPR. This competency-focused agenda is called the Accelerated HeartCode BLS Competency Agenda, and it allows a learner to demonstrate competency and thus potentially shorten the time required to complete the instructor-led hands-on portion of HeartCode BLS. "
 
The standard skills testing syllabus runs 2.25 hours and the accelerated syllabus runs ~70 minutes.  We run the Accelerated HeartCode BLS Competency Agenda only.  For those who feel they need more practice than this syllabus allows, we recommend they take the traditional classroom BLS Provider course.
 

BLS Heartcode Accelerated Syllabus

Educational Critical Care Concepts offers 2015GL Accelerated HeartCode BLS Competency skills sessions which provide a flexible training option for busy healthcare professionals. Parts 2 and 3 require students to meet with an Educational Critical Care Concepts AHA Instructor to complete a hands-on skills practice session and a skills test. Upon successful completion of all three parts, students receive their BLS Provider Course Completion eCard. This course is an ideal option for healthcare providers seeking an alternative to traditional classroom training for first-time or renewal certification. Part 1 (online 2015GL BLS Heartcode) must be completed & the certificate verified prior to Accelerated HeartCode BLS Competency skills session date.
