COURSES

Cardiopulmonary
Resuscitation  (CPR)
and Basic Life Support for
Health Care Providers  (BLS-HCP)

 

Course Description:

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a method of  chest compressions and rescue breathing delivered to unconscious victims thought to be in cardiac arrest.  When cardiac arrest occurs, the heart stops pumping blood.  CPR can support a small amount of blood flow to the heart and brain until normal heart function is restored. CPR is the cornerstone of the BLS

Advanced Cardiovascular
Life Support  (ACLS)

 

Course Description: 

The American Heart Association's Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support course is totally redesigned for healthcare providers who direct or participate in the resuscitation of a patient, in or out of hospital.  Advanced Cardiopulmonary Life Support incorporates current American Heart Association ECC guidelines for real life “code” situations. 

 

Focus areas include: Advanced airway management, ekg analysis, acute coronary syndrome and stroke, ACLS pharmacology, shock, AED’s, special situations, “code team dynamics” and more!

 

Intended Audience:

The course is designed for medical providers such as physicians, nurses, physician assistants, paramedics, respiratory therapists, and other professionals who may respond to a cardiovascular emergency.

 

Card Type:  Course completion with 2 year validation.

Written/Skills Exam:  Required for completion card.

ECG Telemetry 

 

Course Description: 

A two-day course introducing the basic concepts of arrhythmia recognition and interpretation.

This seminar is geared to those who are new to cardiac care and to experienced professional alike. It provides an in depth overview of telemetry and helps non-cardiac specialists understand why it is important to monitor a heart's electrophysiology and to understand what it all means. Every attempt is made to simplify the complexities of telemetry and point out common mistakes so they can be avoided.

Seminar content covers basic cardiac terminology, anatomy related to the heart, electrophysiology, an introduction of monitoring principles, and an analysis of common and potentially lethal dysrhythmias including sinus, atrial, junctional, and ventricular arrhythmias, heart blocks, pacemakers and special considerations.

 

Learning activities include lecture, interactive discussion, analysis of ECG strips and learning evaluation. Seminar design allows time for practice of systematic approach to rhythm interpretation. Certificate of Completion is awarded for 100% attendance and successfully passing a written learning evaluation.

 

Telemetry courses are available to groups of 8 or more students at your venue. Please contact us for more information.

Pediatric Advanced Life Support  (PALS)

 

Course Description:

The completely redesigned American Heart Association Pediatric Advanced Life Support course is based on new science evidence from the 2005 AHA Guidelines for CPR and ECC and a new teaching methodology. The goal of the PALS course is to aid the pediatric healthcare provider in developing the knowledge and skills necessary to efficiently and effectively manage critically ill infants and children, resulting in improved outcomes. Skills taught include recognition and treatment of infants and children at risk for cardiopulmonary arrest; the systematic approach to pediatric assessment; effective respiratory management; defibrillation and synchronized cardioversion; intraosseous access and fluid bolus administration; and effective resuscitation team dynamics.

 

Intended Audience:For pediatricians, emergency physicians, family physicians, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, paramedics, respiratory therapists, and other healthcare providers who initiate and direct advanced life support in pediatric emergencies.

 

Card Type:  Course completion with 2 year validation.

Written/Skills Exam:  Required for completion card.

On-Site Instruction

Advance CE can provide, ACLS, BLS, or PALS courses at your location for classes of 10 or more students which will include interactive hands-on participation and didactic.  All courses are accredited by the American Heart Association and taught by AHA instructors.  Cards issued will be American Heart Association cards, and are valid for 2 years from successful course completion date.  Remediation will be available if required.  It is our goal that all students gain familiarity and understanding of Current AHA ECC guidelines pertaining to ACLS, BLS and PALS.

"The primary goal of ACLS is to empower you to react confidently and competently to manage medical emergencies as they occur in your practice. Focus areas include common medical emergencies, EKG based algorithms, airway management, heart attack and stroke, emergency care teams, pharmacology, and so much more."

 

We are very proud of the educational style we have developed. "ACLS without the stress," is more than just a catch phrase, it’s our philosophy.  You will be given all the tools you need to successfully complete the course, in a relaxed, interactive atmosphere.

Comments from your peers:

"This is the best course I've ever attended. Thanks for making ACLS fun and understandable."

 

"For the first time ACLS makes sense-you really put all the pieces together."

 

“I've dreaded taking this course for years, this was an excellent presentation, I definitely will recommend this to my colleagues.”
