ACLS Refresher


The American Heart Association Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support course is designed for healthcare providers who either direct or participate in the resuscitation of a patient, whether in or out of hospital.

ACLS is based on simulated clinical scenarios that encourage active, hands-on participation through learning stations where students will practice essential skills individually, as part of a team, and as team leader. Realistic simulations reinforce the following key concepts:

  • proficiency in basic life support care;
  • recognizing and initiating early management of peri-arrest conditions;
  • managing cardiac arrest;
  • identifying and treating ischemic chest pain and acute coronary syndromes;
  • recognizing other life-threatening clinical situations (such as stroke);
  • providing initial care;
  • ACLS algorithms; and
  • effective resuscitation and dynamics.
