Audience

ACLS is designed for healthcare professionals who either direct or participate in the management of cardiopulmonary arrest and other cardiovascular emergencies. This includes personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care and critical care units.

Heartcode ACLS is a web-based e-learning product that uses micro-simulation technology to present realistic patient scenarios. Students are presented with the 10 ACLS core cases in hospital-based scenarios. While interacting with the program, students assess each patient, formulate a treatment plan based on ACLS guidelines, and provide treatment. Successful completion of the web-based cognitive component (part A) is required before attending and successfully completing a series of skills assessments (part B) provided by an authorised IHF/AHA training site (Codeblue). Successful completion of both elements meets the requirements for the issuing of an IHF/AHA ACLS provider card to the participant. The international accreditation awarded to successful participants is recognised in over 50 countries throughout the world.

The Heartcode 4 hour ACLS course provides no teaching of practical skills during the face to face component.
