Course Description:

The AHA’s ACLS EP Course has been updated to reflect the 2015 AHA Guidelines for CPR and ECC. In addition
to the 2015 AHA Guidelines CPR and ECC, ACLS EP has continued basis on
· 2013 American College of Cardiology Foundation (ACCF)/AHA Guidelines for the Management of STElevation Myocardial Infarction and the
· 2012 ACCF/AHA Focused Update of the Guideline for the Management of Patients With Unstable Angina/Non–ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction

The goal of ACLS EP is improving outcomes in complex cardiovascular, respiratory, and other (e.g., metabolic,
toxicologic) emergencies by expanding on core ACLS guidelines using critical thinking and decision-making
strategies. Through instruction and active participation in case-based scenarios, students enhance their skills in
the differential diagnosis and treatment of pre-arrest, arrest, and post-arrest patients.

After successfully completing the ACLS EP Course, students should be able to
· Demonstrate proficiency in providing BLS care, including prioritizing chest compressions and integrating use of an AED
· Recognize and manage respiratory arrest
· Recognize and manage cardiac arrest until termination of resuscitation or transfer of care, including post– cardiac arrest care
· Demonstrate effective communication as leader or member of a resuscitation team and recognize the impact of team dynamics on overall team performance
· Apply the systematic approach to assessment, evaluation, and management of complex cardiovascular, respiratory, and other emergencies
