NEW AHA 2015 GUIDELINES!

The BLS for Healthcare Providers Online Course provides a flexible alternative to classroom-based training. 

Part 1 is web-based and accessible 24 hours a day. Through case-based scenarios, interactive activities and videos, this course teaches the concepts of both single-rescuer and team basic life support. 

Upon successful completion of Part 1, students receive a certificate that allows them entrance to a skills practice and testing session. For full course completion, Part 1 must be paired with a hands-on skills practice and testing session (Parts 2 and 3) with an AHA BLS Instructor.

ACLS is an advanced, Instructor-led classroom course that highlights the importance of team dynamics and communication, systems of care and immediate post--cardiac-arrest care. It also covers airway management and related pharmacology. In this course, skills are taught in large, group sessions and small, group learning and testing stations where case-based scenarios are presented.

**Unprepared or inexperienced students may require additional time to complete HeartCode ACLS Part 1. To be successful in any ACLS course, students should be able to identify ECG rhythms and should know pharmacology specific to cardiopulmonary arrest and other cardiopulmonary emergencies before beginning the course. It is strongly recommended that students review the ACLS course materials contained within the program and complete the Precourse Self-Assessment prior to attempting the patient cases.  If you do not, please take one of our ECG/Pharmacology courses or contact us at 808-440-8988 for details.

HeartCode® ACLS Part 1 is an online self-paced instructional program that uses eSimulation technology to allow students to assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings. In this environment, students apply their knowledge to real-time decision making and skills development. Debriefings and coaching are provided immediately after each simulation to facilitate learning.

You will complete the online HeartCode ACLS training.  Upon completion, you will present to the training site for testing of skills.

HeartCode® PALS Part 1 is a web-based, self-directed program that teaches healthcare providers knowledge and skills needed to recognize and prevent cardiopulmonary arrest in infants and children.

This program uses eSimulation technology to allow students to assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings. In this environment, students apply their knowledge to real-time decision-making and skills development. Debriefings and coaching are provided immediately after each simulation to facilitate learning about pediatric advanced life support.

Upon completition of the online training, you will present to the training center for testing of skills.

General Overview

This class is an instructor-led, classroom-based ECG & Pharmacology course is an essential resource for training healthcare professionals who 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, paramedics, and others who require this specialized knowledge for their job. Workbook is also useful as a pre- and post-course reference book. Based on the 2010 American Heart Association Guidelines for CPR and ECC.

The classroom-based, instructor-led ECG & Pharmacology course covers:

  • basic electrophysiology
  • normal ECG measurements
  • basic arrhythmias
  • the administration of appropriate drugs within the ACLS algorithms.

The course contains two modules, ECG and Pharmacology, which may be taught separately or combined into one course.

Eligibility for continuing education credit:

  • Emergency Medical Services -- This continuing education activity is approved by American Heart Association, an organization accredited by the Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services (CECBEMS), for 6.00 Advanced CEHs, activity number 11-AMHA-F2-0139.

The American Heart Association (AHA) Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) Provider Course is designed to teach students the lifesaving skills required to be both a team member and a team leader in either an in-hospital or an out-of-hospital setting.

Because the ACLS Provider Course covers extensive material in a short time we recommend that all students attend the AHA ECG and Pharmacology Course prior to the ACLS course. 

The ACLS course will be adapted to the needs of the new nursing student with lots of hands-on training, plenty of time, and much patience given the key components of the course for a thorough understanding and knowledge of the new AHA 2015 science.

Official new AHA guidelines will be released on October 15, 2015 and reviewed as a large portion of this ACLS course. High Performance CPR will be taught and practiced through out the skills sessions.
