ACLS builds on the foundation of lifesaving basic life support (BLS) skills, emphasizing the importance of continuous, high-quality CPR. This advanced course highlights the importance of high-performance team dynamics and communication; systems of care; and recognition of and intervention in cardiopulmonary arrest, immediate post-cardiac arrest, acute dysrhythmia, stroke, and acute coronary syndromes (ACS).

The ACLS course is designed for healthcare professionals who either direct or participate in the management of cardiopulmonary arrest or other cardiovascular emergencies. This includes personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care, and critical care units -- such as physicians, nurses, and paramedics -- as well as others who need an ACLS course completion card for job or other requirements.

Before taking the ACLS course, students are encouraged to take the online ACLS Precourse Self-Assessment. This test is part of the ACLS student Web site (access granted with purchase of the ACLS Provider Manual).

To access this precourse assessment go to www.heart.org/eccstudent and enter code "acls15"

After successfully completing the ACLS course, students should be able to:

  • apply the BLS, Primary, and Secondary Assessments sequence for a systematic evaluation of adult patients
  • perform prompt, high-quality BLS, including prioritizing early chest compressions and integrating early automated external defibrillator (AED) use
  • recognize and perform early management of respiratory arrest
  • discuss early recognition and management of ACS and stroke, including appropriate disposition
  • recognize and perform early management of bradyarrhythmias and tachyarrhythmias that may result in cardiac arrest or complicate resuscitation outcomes
  • recognize and perform early management of cardiac arrest until termination of resuscitation or transfer of care, including immediate post-cardiac-arrest care
  • model effective communication as a member or leader of a high-performance team
  • evaluate resuscitative efforts during a cardiac arrest through continuous assessment of CPR quality, monitoring the patient’s physiologic response, and delivering real-time feedback to the team
  • recognize the impact of team dynamics on overall team performance
  • discuss how the use of a rapid response team or medical emergency team may improve patient outcomes
  • define systems of care.

For successful course completion, students must:

  • demonstrate skills competency in all learning stations
  • pass the high-quality BLS skills test
  • pass the bag-mask ventilation with OPA/NPA insertion skills test
  • pass the Megacode test
  • pass the ACLS exam with a score of 84% or higher.
