Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) – (American Heart Association)

Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) – (American Heart Association)

The ACLS (Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support) course according to the guidelines of the American Heart Association aims to develop and improve the knowledge and skills of healthcare professionals regarding the management of cardiovascular emergencies in hospital and non-hospital settings.

Particular emphasis is given to the concepts of coordinated team work and effective communication, considered essential elements for the success of the resuscitation maneuvers in the health sector. The course takes place through the use of audiovisual resources certified by the American Heart Association and commented by the instructor with the aim of deepening and providing useful details on the contents.

The Instructors / Learners ratio of 1: 6, required by the American Heart Association international guidelines, guarantees optimal delivery of teaching with constant monitoring throughout the course, learning of the learner and timely and effective correction of any errors in the practical sessions.

The ACLS course focuses attention, in its initial part, on the review of the basic components of basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation (effective chest compressions, mechanical ventilation, use of the AED). The course continues with diagnosis and treatment of respiratory and cardiac arrest conditions and periarrestal conditions. It is also about advanced airway management, diagnosis and treatment of coronary syndromes and strokes and the pharmacology associated with the aforementioned diseases.

Theoretical and practical aspects:

  • Apply the BLS, Primary, and SecondaryAssessments sequence for a systematic evaluation of adult patients
  • Perform prompt, high-quality BLS, including prioritizing early chest compressions and integrating early automated external defibrillator (AED) use
  • 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
  • Recognize and perform early management of cardiac arrest until termination of resuscitation or transfer of care, including immediate post–cardiac arrest care
  • Model effective communication as a member or leader of a high-performance team
  • Evaluate resuscitative efforts during a cardiac arrest through continuous assessment of CPR quality, monitoring the patient’s physiologic response, and delivering real-time feedback to the team
  • Recognize the impact of team dynamics on overall team performance
  • Discuss how the use of a rapid response team or medical emergency team may improve patient outcomes
  • Define systems of care
