Expands on the core ACLS guidelines through cooperative learning to improve outcomes in complex cardiovascular, respiratory and other (e.g., metabolic, toxicologic) emergencies. Through instruction and active participation in case-based scenarios, learners enhance their skills in the differential diagnosis and treatment of prearrest, arrest and post-arrest patients.
This advanced course highlights the importance of high-performance team dynamics and communication, systems of care, recognition and intervention of cardiopulmonary arrest, immediate post-cardiac arrest, acute dysrhythmia, stroke, and acute coronary syndromes (ACS).

  • Course uses learning stations for practice of essential skills simulated clinical scenarios that encourage active participation
  • Hands-on class format reinforces skills proficiency
  • Classroom-based works well for learners who prefer group interaction and instructor feedback while learning skills
