All the participants are required to study the manual which will be delivered 15 days before the start of the course. The manual will include all the topics related to the course. This will facilitate theory understanding and will leave space for practical training. In addition to the manual, the participants will be provided with two reminders containing all the algorithms which will be discussed in class.

The manual is also available in eBook format.

To acquire theoretical knowledge and practical skills necessary to both diagnostic and therapeutic process relating to cardiac arrest. To acquire the capacity of coordination of an advanced resuscitation team.

Through practical instructions and simulations, all the participants will improve their skills in recognition and intervention in case of cardiopulmonary arrest, in Post-cardiac arrest conditions, acute arrhythmia, stroke and acute coronary syndromes.

ACLS AHA Instructors
