ACLS Gainesville Certification

Advanced Cardiopulmonary Life Support (ACLS) is designed for healthcare professionals who either direct or participate in the management of cardiopulmonary arrest and other cardiovascular emergencies. This includes personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care and critical care units. 

PALS Certification in Gainesville, FL

Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) is for healthcare providers who respond to emergencies in infants and children. These include personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care and critical care units such as physicians, nurses, paramedics and others who need a PALS course completion card for job or other requirements. 

Who typically takes this course?
Physicians, Nurses, Physician Assistants, Staff working in intensive care units or emergency/critical care departments, Paramedics, EMTs Dentists/Oral Surgeons

Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support

ACLS builds on the foundation of lifesaving basic life support (BLS) skills, emphasizing the importance of continuous, high-quality CPR. 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).

After successfully completing the ACLS course, students should be able to:

  • Apply the BLS, Primary, and Secondary Assessments 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.

Pediatric Advanced Life Support

HeartCode PALS is a comprehensive program that uses a series of videos and simulated pediatric emergencies to reinforce the important concepts of a systematic approach to pediatric assessment, basic life support, PALS treatment algorithms, effective resuscitation, and team dynamics.  Using eSimulation technology, students can assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings. In this environment, students also apply their knowledge to real-time decision-making and skills development. Debriefings and coaching are provided immediately after each simulation to facilitate learning.

 

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to

  • Perform high-quality Child CPR AED and Infant CPR per AHA BLS recommendations

  • Differentiate between patients who do and do not require immediate intervention

  • Recognize cardiopulmonary arrest early and begin CPR within 10 seconds

  • Apply team dynamics

  • Differentiate between respiratory distress and failure

  • Perform early interventions for respiratory distress and failure

  • Differentiate between compensated and decompensated (hypotensive) shock

  • Perform early interventions for the treatment of shock

  • Differentiate between unstable and stable patients with arrhythmias

  • Describe clinical characteristics of instability in patients with arrhythmias

  • Implement post–cardiac arrest management
