The ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) Course is designed to teach providers the knowledge and skills needed to evaluate and manage the first 10 minutes of an adult VF/VT cardiac arrest. Students are expected to learn to manage the 10 core ACLS cases: respiratory emergency, 4 types of cardiac arrest (simple VF/VT, complex VF/VT, PEA, and asystole), 4 types of pre-arrest emergencies (bradycardia, stable tachycardia, unstable tachycardia, and acute coronary syndromes), and stroke.
The ACLS course covers working as a team, reading cardiac rhythms and drug administration including the different drugs (Atropine, Adenosine, Epinephrine, etc…) and routes of administration.
This class is designed for those who are emergency, intensive care, or critical care personnel; emergency medical providers such as physicians, nurses, EMTs, paramedics, respiratory therapists, and other professionals who may need to respond to cardiovascular emergencies.

Pediatric Advanced Life Support–PALS– Now available
The PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support) course gives healthcare professionals the knowledge and skills to better recognize and treat critically ill infants and children.
The course, like the ACLS course, uses a scenario-based, team approach to teach pediatric emergency management of pediatric patients approaching or already in respiratory or cardiac arrest.
The course covers treatment beyond the first few emergency minutes and goes through stabilizing patients or transport phases of a pediatric emergency, in or out of the hospital.
