The Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) Provider Course is designed for healthcare providers who either direct or participate in the resuscitation of a patient, whether in or out of hospital. The goal of the ACLS Provider Course is to improve the quality of care provided to the adult victim of a cardiac arrest or other cardiopulmonary emergency.

You will enhance your skills in the treatment of arrest and peri-arrest patients through active participation in a series of simulated cardiac and respiratory cases. These simulations are designed to reinforce important concepts, including

    • The Basic Life Support (BLS) Primary Survey
    • The ACLS Secondary Survey
    • ACLS algorithms
    • Effective resuscitation team dynamics
Please arrive at least 20 mins early to sign-in and bring a picture ID.

Upon successful completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Recognize and initiate early management of peri-arrest conditions that may result in cardiac arrest or complicate resuscitation outcome
  • Demonstrate proficiency in providing BLS care, including prioritizing chest compressions and integrating AED use
  • Manage cardiac arrest until the return of spontaneous circulation, transfer of care, or termination of resuscitation
  • Identify and treat ischemic chest pain and expedite the care of patients with acute coronary syndromes
  • Recognize other life-threatening clinical situations, such as stroke, and provide effective initial care and transfer to reduce disability and death
  • Demonstrate effective communication as a member or leader of a resuscitation team and recognize the impact of team dynamics on overall team performance
