American Heart Association’s Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support Course
The American Heart Association’s Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) course is totally redesigned for healthcare providers who either direct or participate in the resuscitation of a patient, whether in or out of hospital. Through the ACLS course, providers will enhance their skills in the treatment of the adult victim of a cardiac arrest or other cardiopulmonary emergencies. ACLS emphasizes the importance of basic life support CPR to patient survival; the integration of effective basic life support with advanced cardiovascular life support interventions; and the importance of effective team interaction and communication during resuscitation.
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) and providing initial care; ACLS algorithms; and effective resuscitation team dynamics.
Course Length: ~13.5 Hours, including breaks
The course is designed for medical providers such as physicians, nurses, emergency medical technicians, paramedics, respiratory therapists, and other professionals who may respond to a cardiovascular emergency.
Geriatric Education for Emergency Medical Services
The American Geriatrics Society and the National Council of State Emergency Medical
Services Training Coordinators are pleased to bring you Geriatric Education for
Emergency Medical Services (GEMS), a new national continuing education
curriculum. The exciting new program is the first of its kind – designed specifically for
First Responders, EMTs, Paramedics, and any other emergency care provider.
The proportion of the aged in society today is greater than ever before, and growing
faster than any other segment of our population. Current indications are that
approximately 34% of calls for emergency medical services, or 3.4 million emergency
responses involve patients over the age of 60. GEMS represents the most credible and
complete source of prehospital medical information for the older population.
The GEMS course is designed to address all of the special needs of the older population,
including the geriatric objectives as identified in the EMT-Basic, Intermediate, and
Paramedic National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) National
The GEMS course is innovative, comprehensive, and highly visual with:
- Case-Based Lectures – The GEMS lectures cover the most important points that need to be emphasized. This is done through the use of case studies, which start students thinking about how they would treat a similar case in the field.
- Live Action Video – Containing real-life footage from the field, these clips illustrate hands-on skills covered in the GEMS course.
- Hands-on Skill Stations – The GEMS Skill Stations are an important part of helping students practice the hands-on aspects of what they learn by reading the text, listening to the lectures and watching the official GEMS video.
- Small Group Scenarios – The scenarios help students apply information from all aspects of the GEMS course.
