Product Description


IMPORTANT:
The expectation coming into an ACLS FULL course is that you can recognize ECG 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 review ECG rhythms prior to attending this course.  If you do not have rhythm review material, you can add on the optional Adult Rhythm Review Student Workbook from the optional items (below).  This workbook was designed to review all rhythms that a student will be exposed to in an ACLS course.If you wish to purchase the Adult Rhythm Review Student Workbook seperately, you can do so from our online store by clicking here.

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 eCard for job or other requirements.

  • 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

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.

2015GL BLS Heartcode

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 Program Description

HeartCode BLS uses the latest eSimulation technology to enable students to assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings.

Product Desciption

This item is the online portion of the Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) course when taken in a blended-learning format. Once students pass the included exam at the end of the online portion, they participate in a classroom-based training session featuring discussion, skills practice, and testing. Successful completion of both the online and classroom portions, including skills practice and testing with a certified American Heart Association PALS Instructor, qualifies students for a PALS provider course eCard. Based on the 2015 American Heart Association Guidelines for CPR and ECC.


Locations

  • 25 Indian Rock Road, Suite 25 (The Commons Plaza) Windham, NH 03087
  • Portsmouth Regional Hospital , 333 Borthwick Ave, Portsmouth, NH 01880


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 eCard for job or other requirements.


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


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 eCard that is valid for two years.


Key Features and Benefits

HeartCode PALS is the online portion of the PALS course when taken in a blended-learning format. It uses a variety of eLearning assets -- such as dramatizations, eSimulations, animations, self-directed learning, and interactive activities -- to teach students PALS knowledge and skills. To enter the course, students must complete the online PALS Precourse Self-Assessment to evaluate the learner's ability to integrate both rhythm interpretation and use of pharmacologic agents. After completing HeartCode PALS, including passing the online exam with a score of 84% or higher, students attend a structured Instructor-led classroom session that focuses on meaningful skills practice, debriefing, and skills testing.
