AHA’s BLS Course provides the foundation for saving lives after cardiac arrest. BLS teaches the concepts of high-quality CPR, improvement of chest compression fraction, and high-performing team dynamics.

The goal of the Basic Life Support (BLS) Course is to train participants to save lives of victims in cardiac arrest through high-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The American Heart Association (AHA) designed the BLS Course to teach healthcare professionals how to perform high-quality CPR individually or as part of a team. BLS skills are applicable to any healthcare setting. BLS students will learn rescue techniques for adults, children, and infants.

AHA Student cards are now sent via email from eCards@heart.org. Please allow up to 48 hours to receive.

COURSE DELIVERY

The AHA's BLS Course is designed for healthcare providers caring for patients both in and out of the hospital setting. 

• Instructor-led Training

Led by an instructor in a classroom setting. Instructors deliver courses designed to include both the cognitive portion of traning and the psychomotor component of thorough skills practice and testing.

 

AHA’s ACLS Course builds on the foundation of lifesaving BLS skills, emphasizing the importance of continuous, high-quality CPR.

 

Things to know before taking this course:

  • All students must complete the Pre-course Self-Assessment and achieve a score of at least 70% before taking the ACLS Course.
  • Students must print their successful Pre-course Self-Assessment score report and course completion certificate and bring it with them to class.

 

The ACLS Provider Course is designed for healthcare providers who either direct or participate in the management of cardiopulmonary arrest or other cardiovascular emergencies. Through didactic instruction and active participation in simulated cases, students will enhance their skills in recognition and intervention of cardiopulmonary arrest, immediate post-cardiac arrest, acute arrhythmia, stroke and acute coronary syndromes (ACS).

 AHA student cards are now sent via email from eCards@heart.org, please allow up to 48 hours to receive.

WHO SHOULD TAKE THE COURSE?

Providers who take the full ACLS Course must be proficient in the following:

• Performing high-quality BLS skills through the use of the 2020 AHA Guidelines Update for CPR and ECC

• Reading and interpreting electrocardiograms (ECGs)

• Understanding ACLS drugs

• Bag-mask Ventilations

 

COURSE COVERS

The ACLS Provider Course emphazises three major concepts:

• The crucial importance of high-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to patient survival

• The integration of effective basic life support (BLS) with ACLS interventions

• The importance of effective team interaction and communication during resuscitation

The course is designed to give students the opportunity to practice and demonstrate proficiency in the following skills used in resuscitation:

• Systematic approach

• High-quality BLS

• Airway management

• Rhythm recognition

• Defibrillation

• Intravenous (IV)/intraosseous (IO) access (information only)

• Use of medications

• Cardioversion

• Transcutaneous pacing

• Team dynamics

Students will practice the application of these and other skills in simulated cases and will practice both Team Leader and team member roles.

Upon successful completion of this 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 respiratory arrest

• Perform early management of respiratory arrest

• Discuss early recognition and management of ACS, including appropriate disposition

• Discuss early recognition and management of stroke, including appropriate disposition

• Recognize bradyarrhythmias and tachyarrhythmias that may result in cardiac arrest or complicate resuscitation outcome

• Perform early management of bradyarrhythmias and tachyarrythmias that may result in cardiac arrest or compliance resuscitation outcome

• Recognize cardiac arrest

• 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

 

COURSE DELIVERY

The instructor-led training is a traditional classroom course conducted on-site at a Training Center or other facility. The course is structured as follows:

• Core concepts are presented through course videos, instructor-led discussions, and case-based scenarios around manikin.

• Students take an exam to confirm understanding of core concepts.

• The instructor coaches students as they practice skills.

• The instructor monitors as each student demonstrates skills proficiency as outlined in the skills testing checklist.

COURSE DELIVERY

ACLS can be delivered in 2 formats to meet the needs of students and offer flexibility for Instructors. All formats include the same learning objectives and result in the same course completion card.

• Instructor-led Training

Instructors deliver both the cognitive portion of training and the psychomotor component of thorough skills practice and testing in a classroom setting.

• Blended Learning – HeartCode® ACLS

Includes a combination of eLearning, in which a student completes part of the course in a self-directed manner, and a hands-on session.

The NRP course has been designed to teach an evidence-based approach to resuscitation of the newborn. The causes, prevention, and management of mild to severe neonatal asphyxia are carefully explained so that health professionals may develop optimal knowledge and skill in resuscitation.

The Neonatal Resuscitation Program™ is an educational program that introduces the concepts and basic skills of neonatal resuscitation. Completion of the program does not imply that an individual has the competence to perform neonatal resuscitation. Each hospital is responsible for determining the level of competence and qualifications required for someone to assume clinical responsibility for neonatal resuscitation.

A comprehensive instructional textbook, which includes an interactive multi-media DVD-ROM, forms the basic educational component of the program.

 

How to Complete the NRP Program

1. Complete the online theory examination.

  • Register for the online exam at  http://www.aap.org/nrp/
  • Use your copy of the “Textbook of Neonatal Resuscitation 8th Edition” to study and prepare for the exam.
  • Bring a copy of the exam verification form to the skills session and give to the NRP instructor.

2. Complete the live skills evaluation.

  • Select a skills evaluation option and date below.  *** Please note that the skills evaluation must be completed within 30 days of completing the exam.
