The American Heart Association ACLS course offered by Creativeresol-ve Educ. Co. is totally redesigned to incorporate new science evidence from the 2015 Guidelines and a new teaching methodology.
Through the ACLS course, healthcare providers will enhance their skills in the treatment of the adult victim of a cardiac arrest or other cardiopulmonary emergencies.
The ACLS Provider Course is designed to provide the knowledge and skills needed to evaluate and manage the first 10 minutes of an adult ventricular fibrillation/ventricular tachycardia (VF/VT) arrest using the systematic ACLS guidelines of the American Heart Association, as well as evaluating, and managing sudden adult respiratory arrest, VF/VT arrest, asystole, pulseless electrical activity, bradycardias, stable and unstable tachycardias, acute coronary syndromes and acute stroke.
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.
Course evaluation methods include a skill and practical evaluation using core-based scenarios and an evaluation of the participant’s knowledge as measured by a written examination.
ACLS Provider Card will be given on the same day after skills completion.

ACLS SPECIAL SITUATION: TRAUMA, MASS SHOOTING, GUN WOUNDS
The first thing to do if you are near a victim is to ensure that you are safe. Make sure that the assailant has left the area and there is no obvious threat to you. You will be no help to the victims if you get injured or killed while trying to help them.
If you believe the assailant is still nearby or that there is an active threat you should shelter in place, which means try to take cover or hide near where you are, or try to run away to safety if you think it is safe to do so.
Medication Errors- Be in the loop
Medication is an integral part of the Nursing Process. And Nurses are expected to know about any medications they administer: their indications and contraindications, right dosage, route of administration, side effects and adverse reactions -all these to avoid medication errors.
What is Medication Error? According to the National Coordinating Council for Medication Error Reporting and Prevention (NCCMERP) a medication error is “any preventable event that may cause or lead to inappropriate medication use or patient harm while the medication is in the control of the health care professional, patient, or consumer. Such events may be related to professional practice, health care products, procedures, and systems, including prescribing; order communication; product labeling, packaging, and nomenclature; compounding; dispensing; distribution; administration; education; monitoring; and use.”
AHA CPR Guidelines: Updated Recommendations for 2015
The 2015 American Heart Association (AHA) Guidelines Update for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) announced that they will release simultaneous new guidelines that they transition to a web based format which will allow continuous updates This will be extremely helpful in those instances where new science makes a recommendation obsolete soon after publication of a guidelines update and years before the next update is scheduled for release.
Here is a bullet point presentation on the changes in ACLS:
- The combined use of vasopressin and epinephrine offers no advantage to using standard –dose epinephrine in cardiac arrest. Also, vasopressin does not offer an advantage over the use epinephrine alone.
- There is an adequate evidence to support routine use of lidocaine after cardiac arrest. However, the initiation or continuation of lidocaine may be considered immediately after ROSC from cardiac arrest due to VF/pVT.
- There is an adequate evidence to support routine use of B-blocker after cardiac arrest. However, the initiation or continuation of an oral or IV B-blocker may be considered early after hospitalization from cardiac arrest due to VF/pVT.
- TTM recommendations have been updated with new evidence suggesting that a range of temperatures may be acceptable to target in the post-cardiac arrests period.
After TTM is complete, fever may develop. While there are conflicting observational data about the harm of fever after TTM, the prevention of fever is considered benign and therefore reasonable to pursue.
New ACLS Team-based Resuscitation Information
To effectively resuscitate a patient from cardiac arrest, there must be a team of proficient caregivers that would execute the necessary steps in the management of the situation. While the team can be composed of different individuals with varying levels of expertise, they should operate as a single team. In addition, there must be an assigned leader that would oversee the whole process. The leader of the team organizes and synchronizes all the components of the resuscitation process- initial patient evaluation, activation of the emergency system, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, AED, and the termination of resuscitation. Through this, overlapping of tasks is eliminated, interruption of cardiopulmonary resuscitation is minimized, adequate depth and frequency of compressions are delivered, and every step in the protocol is properly executed.
The current updates released by the American Heart Association included new information on the advanced cardiac life support team-based resuscitation.
In the 2010 guidelines on early warning systems, rapid response and medical emergency team systems, the recommendation was that there should be a systematic identification of patients who may develop cardiac arrest. In addition, there must be an organized approach in responding to these patients as well as assessment of the results so that quality is maintained. Current updates added that for adult patients, a rapid response team (RRT) or a medical emergency team (MET) may be utilized to decrease the occurrence of cardiac arrest in the general wards. The same principle can be applied to facilities that cater the needs of pediatric patients in high-risk conditions. Early warning sign systems should be put up for both adult and pediatric patients.
