FREE EDUCATIONAL BENEFIT

The Advanced Cardiac Life Support {ACLS} course encompasses a set of clinical algorithms that help in the management of heart attacks, stroke, and other cardiovascular emergencies. The course is offered as two options: ACLS online training online or an ACLS Study Guide. ACLS online recertification and training is available to qualified healthcare personnel. The coursework covers the interpretation of electrocardiograms, the effective use of medications, and the process of initiating vascular access. Things that every healthcare professional needs to know to handle neurologic and cardiac emergencies. 

The ACLS course builds on the elements covered in the BLS course, and it is therefore recommended that course participants earn BLS certification before starting the online ACLS course. The logic of this is that, in a cardiac or neurologic emergency, the very first action is to initiate the Chain of Survival, and this sometimes involves the use of an AED – a skill that is covered in the BLS course.

Types of algorithms in ACLS

The current guidelines for free ACLS certification online include understanding and recognition of different algorithms. Algorithms are sets of standardized instructions on the management of different cardiac and neurologic emergencies. The algorithms are presented in the form of flowcharts that require yes-or-no decisions when handling emergencies.

The following are subjects of ACLS algorithms:

  • Cardiac arrest 
  • Bradycardia
  • Tachycardia
  • Respiratory arrest
  • Opioid emergency
  • Pulseless electrical activity

  • medtigo’s ACLS course was excellent. It covered the latest and most important updates in ACLS, focusing on the most relevant facts for efficient and quality care delivery to patients. The course was easy to log into, free of charge, and logically organized for productive training. Lectures were clear and crisp. The final exam was fair and reflective of the lecture and study material. Would recommend this to anyone looking to re-certify for ACLS. Thank you, medtigo, for hosting this.”
