This is the online portion of ACLS. When you complete the online part and print the certificate, please call and set up a time for your hands on portion (832)472-2390. This is an AHA course and after completing the skills check off you will receive an AHA ACLS card. Any heartcode bought after 4pm week days will be e-mailed to you the next day. Any heartcode purchased on the weekend will be emailed to you the following business day.
- This product is non-returnable.
- Updated to reflect new science in the 2015 American Heart Association Guidelines for CPR and ECC
- Blended learning is a combination of eLearning, in which a student completes part of the course in a self-directed manner, followed by a hands-on session.
- 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. The cases may be repeated as many times as necessary to pass.
- HeartCode® ACLS is designed for healthcare professionals who either direct or participate in the management of cardiopulmonary arrest or other cardiovascular emergencies. This includes personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care, and critical care units such as physicians, nurses, and paramedics, as well as others who need an ACLS course completion card for job or other requirements.
- You must provide an e-mail address when ordering this product. A key and instructional information will be sent to you in order to activate the course online..
After successfully completing HeartCode® ACLS, 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 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
- Includes 10 in-hospital patient cases (Individual scenarios within each case may vary depending on the learner to maximize the learning opportunities and mimic the variation of real-life scenarios.)
- Videos include: Systematic Approach, Science of Resuscitation, High-Quality BLS, Airway Management, Acute Coronary Syndromes, Stroke, Team Dynamics, Megacode (2), IO and Algorithms (4)
- eSimulation cases include: BLS case, 7 Cardiovascular, Respiratory and Stroke cases, and 2 MegaCode cases
- Summary of critical concepts provided for each eSimulation case
- Virtual debriefings provided immediately after each eSimulation
- Provides online access to the ACLS Provider Manual and 2015 Handbook of ECC
- Multiple choice, 50-question exam to test cognitive knowledge
- Certificate of completion available to print after HeartCode® ACLS modules, exam, and course evaluation have been completed successfully
- Students may access all information included in HeartCode® ACLS for 24 months (two years) following activation of course.
