The 2015 AHA ACLS Provider course requires essential knowledge in common ACLS drugs and their pharmacology, interpretation of EKG rhythms, and use of ACLS algorithms. The ACLS course has been updated as of May 2015 and thus we have updated the ACLS Prep Course to reflect these new AHA guidelines. The ACLS Prep course is designed to provide the fundamentals necessary for the core ACLS certification course. In the Prep course, students will receive detailed instruction on basic cardiac anatomy and electrophysiology, normal sinus rhythm, and baseline EKG parameters. Students will also learn how to use American Heart Association (AHA) algorithms for the adult victim of cardiac arrest or other cardiopulmonary emergencies. This section addresses arrhythmias including sinus bradycardia and tachycardia, supraventricular arrhythmias, ventricular arrhythmias, asystole and pulseless electrical activity (PEA), atrioventricular block, and atrial and ventricular pacing.

The pharmacology section of the course includes a discussion of priorities for drug administration, and provides an in-depth analysis of mechanisms, indications, contraindications, special considerations, warnings and side effects of the most common ACLS medications.


Upon completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1.Discuss early recognition and management of Acute Coronary Syndrome
2.Discuss early recognition and management of an Acute Stroke
3.Perform early recognition and management of Bradycardia Arrhythmias
4.Perform early recognition and management of Tachycardia Arrhythmias
5.Perform early recognition and management of Cardiac Arrest
6.Explain the basic heart anatomy and physiology
7.Recognize, and explain normal EKG measurements
8.Differentiate between the different types of ACLS arrhythmias
9.Describe how to use the ACLS algorithms
10.List basic ACLS drugs, doses and routes of administration used during cardiovascular emergencies
11.Evaluate the mechanisms of actions (MOA), side effects (S/E), and dosages of the drugs used in ACLS
12.Choose how to integrate drug pharmacology into ACLS algorithms for each ACLS cardiac dysrhythmia
