ACLS builds on the foundation of lifesaving basic life support (BLS) skills, emphasizing the importance of continuous, high quality CPR. This advanced course highlights the importance of high performance TEAM dynamics and communication; systems of care; and recognition of and intervention in cardiopulmonary arrest, immediate post-cardiac arrest, acute dysrhythmia, stroke, and acute coronary syndromes (ACS). This course DOES NOT teach you how to read rhythms. Students must have a basic understanding of rhythms and pharmacology. Students will be required to pass a rhythm strip and a written exam.
Before taking the ACLS course, students must pass the online ACLS Precourse Self-Assessment with a score of 70% or higher. To qualify for an ACLS Course Completion Card, students must demonstrate skills competency in all learning stations; pass the high-quality BLS skills, bag mask ventilation with OPA/NPA insertion skills, and Megacode tests; and pass the ACLS exam with a score of 84% or higher.
