HeartCode® ACLS is a self-directed, comprehensive eLearning program that uses eSimulation technology to allow students to assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings. To enter the course, students must complete a precourse self-assessment. Students will then be presented with a team dynamics lesson and 10 In-hospital patient cases, including a BLS case and 2 megacode cases.

Upon successful completion of all the patient cases, students must pass the written exam with a score of 84%. Students then are able to attend the hands-on session required for full course completion.

 

Features

 

•Updated science and education reflecting the 2015 AHA Guidelines Update for CPR and ECC

•Enhanced learning experience through eSimulations, life-like animations, and realistic scenarios

•Advanced, evidence-based resuscitation education and skills critical to the Chain of Survival

•Enhanced course structure and scenarios to ensure immediate preparedness in real-world situations

•Continuing education credits available

 

Course Content

After successfully completing the HeartCode ACLS Course, including the online portion, followed by the hands-on skills session, students should be able to

•Apply the BLS, Primary, and Secondary Assessments sequence for a systematic evaluation of adult patients

•Recognize and perform early management of respiratory arrest

•Discuss early recognition and management of ACS and stroke, including appropriate disposition

•Recognize and perform early management of bradyarrhythmias and tachyarrhythmias that may result in cardiac arrest or complicate resuscitation outcome
