Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) is the American Heart Association basic standard for acute care resuscitation.


This instructor led course provides the core elements of resuscitation, highlighting the importance of high-performance team dynamics and communication, systems of care, recognition and intervention of cardiopulmonary arrest, and immediate post-cardiac arrest management. The ACLS course also covers acute dysrhythmia, stroke, and acute coronary syndromes (ACS).
