The AHA’s ACLS Course has been updated to new science in the 2015 American Heart Association
Guidelines Update for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (2015 AHA Guidelines for CPR and ECC). This course builds on the foundation of lifesaving basic life support (BLS) skills, emphasizing the importance of continuous, high-quality CPR. The didactic instruction and simulated cases in this advanced course are designed to help enhance their skills in the recognition and intervention of cardiopulmonary arrest, immediate post–cardiac arrest, acute arrhythmia, stroke, and acute coronary syndromes.
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
- 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 • Model effective communication as a member or leader of a high-performance 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
The ACLS Instructor Manual eBook is the electronic equivalent of the AHA’s ACLS Instructor Manual. It offers an alternative to the printed manual. Please note, included with the ACLS Instructor Manual eBook are Printable Lesson Plans. For instructors who would prefer to have printed material during class instruction, a downloadable PDF will be automatically included with the purchase of the ACLS Instructor Manual eBook. Because this tool is electronic, there are no separate supplementary tools included through the eBook store (e.g., reference cards, guides.) All supplementary tools are accessible electronically through CPRverify.
Intended Audience: 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.
