Advanced Life Support (ALS) Training

In this training course, candidates will be able to apply a systematic algorithm-based treatment approach to the management of respiratory arrest, ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia, pulses electrical activity, asystole, stable and unstable tachycardias and bradycardias. In addition, candidates will also be able to identify and treat ischaemic chest pain, expedite the care of acute coronary syndromes and stroke, and provide effective initial care and transfer to reduce the likelihood of disability and death.

ACLS is a practical, simulated case-based course that will enhance resuscitation skills in the management of cardiac arrest and peri-arrest patients. Ideal performance is initially demonstrated via video and or instructor, then learning is facilitated by extensive hands-on practice, with each participant receiving several opportunities to lead their team in simulated clinical scenarios.
