Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) recertification includes a series of algorithmic medical procedures and techniques designed for the urgent treatment of cardiac arrest, stroke and similar life threatening cardiac emergencies. The course expands upon basic life support with more advanced skills such as Electrocardiogram (ECG) rhythm interpretation for core ACLS rhythms, airway management and appropriate adjuncts, ACLS drugs and pharmacology, practical application of ACLS rhythms and drugs, and effective high-performance team skills for Basic Life Support and ACLS. Many hospitals and other medical facilities require this advanced training for anyone who may work with cardiac patients.
This course is nationally accredited in joint partnership with the Postgraduate Institution of Medicine. Upon course completion, you will receive 4 CEU/CME credits.
Because good Basic Life Support (BLS) skills are foundational to ACLS skills, a BLS certification is strongly encouraged, or in most cases, a pre-requisite for taking the ACLS certification. In addition, participants who enter the ProACLS course are required to have already obtained the basic knowledge and skills in Advanced Cardiac Life Support.
Total course time includes 3 hours and 17 minutes of video training as well as knowledge reviews, final test, remedial help and reviewing downloaded material.
“ProACLS offers a great refresher program that is extremely thorough and leaves you feeling prepared to practice the skills you learned. ”
“I was skeptical to enroll myself first because of so much of attention drawing prompts on the screen and the chat help that was available. To my surprise everything is excellent about this course including the videos, method of study and not to mention, the customer service. I wish I have a course like this for my internal medicine board review. Excellent!!!! Usha Donthireddi MD.”
