Course Content

• Key changes in advanced cardiovascular life support, reflecting
the 2010 American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary
Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care

• Basic life support skills, including effective chest compressions,
use of a bag-mask device and use of an (AED)

• Recognition and early management of respiratory and cardiac arrest

• Recognition and early management of peri-arrest conditions such as symptomatic

• Airway management

• Related pharmacology

• Management of acute coronary syndromes (ACS) and stroke

• Effective communication as a member and leader of a
resuscitation team

• Effective Resuscitation Team Dynamics
ACLS is based on simulated clinical scenarios that encourage active, hands-on participation through
learning stations where students will practice essential skills individually, as part of a team, and as team
leader. Realistic simulations reinforce the following key concepts: proficiency in basic life support care;
recognizing and initiating early management of peri-arrest conditions; managing cardiac arrest;
identifying and treating ischemic chest pain and acute coronary syndromes; recognizing other life-
threatening clinical situations (such as stroke) and providing initial care; ACLS algorithms; and effective
resuscitation team dynamics.
