health care Provider Level Courses:
Basic Life Support for health care Providers (BLS)
For health care providers – for example, EMS personnel, physician
assistants, physicians, dentists, nurses, respiratory therapists and others
who must have a credential (card) documenting successful completion of
a CPR course.
This course is designed to teach the skills of CPR for victims of all ages,
use of an automated external defibrillator and relief of choking.
A student CD, included with the text, contains supplemental information
for interested students on topics such as stroke, cardiac arrest, and
special resuscitation situations.
The course is video-based with instructor-led discussion and simulation.
Students participate in, practice and complete various skills and learning stations.
Ideal for learners who prefer group interaction and feedback from an instructor
while learning skills.
Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS)
For emergency, intensive care, or critical care health care providers such
as physicians, nurses, paramedics, respiratory therapists, and other professionals
who may need to respond to a cardiovascular emergency.
health care providers will enhance their skills in the treatment of the
adult victim of a cardiac arrest or other cardiopulmonary emergencies.
ACLS emphasizes the importance of basic life support CPR to patient survival;
the integration of effective basic life support with advanced cardiovascular
life support interventions; and the importance of effective team interaction
and communication during resuscitation.
Students engage in 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.
Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS)
For pediatricians, emergency physicians, family physicians, physician assistants,
nurses, nurse practitioners, paramedics, respiratory therapists, and other
health care providers who initiate and direct advanced life support in
