ACLS (Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support) Blended Learning

Heartcode ACLS. AHA ACLS Certification Class. ACLS online with ACLS Skills Session.

American Heart Association ACLS Certification (Blended Learning HeartCode ACLS)

The Blended Learning HeartCode ACLS class is an hybrid learning course that consists of an online class (ACLS e-learning) followed by an in-person ACLS Skills Session with an AHA instructor.  The Skills Session is a hands-on test and demonstration of the skills the student learned during the online class.  Students receive an American Heart Association “ACLS Provider” certification.  This course is appropriate for initial ACLS certification and ACLS renewal (ACLS recertification or ACLS update).

 

The AHA HeartCode ACLS (Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support) course builds on the foundation of lifesaving Basic Life Support (BLS) skills, emphasizing the importance of continuous, high-quality CPR.

 

The following topics are covered in the Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support online class:

  • BLS skills, including effective chest compressions and use of a bag-mask device
  • Recognition and early management of cardiac arrest
  • Recognition and early management of peri-arrest conditions such as tachyarrhythmias and symptomatic bradycardia
  • Airway management
  • Related pharmacology
  • Management of ACS and stroke
  • Effective communication as a member and leader of a resuscitation team

 

During the AHA HeartCode ACLS Skills Session (also known as an ACLS Assessment, ACLS Psychomotor Skills Assessment, or ACLS Skills Check), participants will have an opportunity to review the current ACLS guidelines with the instructor, including peri-arrest and cardiac arrest algorithms and medications, before being tested on adult BLS, ventilation, and megacode scenarios.
