The American Heart Association strongly promotes knowledge and proficiency in ACLS and has developed instructional materials for this purpose. Use of these materials in an educational course does not represent course sponsorship by the American Heart Association. Any fees charged for such a course, except for a portion of fees needed for AHA course material, do not represent income to the association. • Certification cards for ACLS providers are valid for two years. It is the cardholder’s responsibility to contact a training center or institution to arrange for a renewal course and written exam. • ACLS provider and renewal courses are limited to the first 18 qualified pre-paid registrants. For further information on evidence-based resuscitation guidelines, Provider and Instructor Course participants are encouraged to review the website http:// www.c2005.org/presenter.jhtml?identifier=3022512 ACLS Instructors and Planners As an ACCME/ADA CERP accredited sponsor the University of Mississippi Schools of Medicine and Dentistry strives to insure balance, independence, objectivity and scientific integrity in all its individually sponsored or jointly sponsored educational activities.

The ACLS Provider Course is designed for healthcare providers who either direct or participate in the management of cardiopulmonary arrest or other cardiovascular emergency. Through didactic instruction and active participation in simulated cases, students will enhance their skills and clinical decision-making abilities for the diagnosis and treatment of cardiopulmonary arrest, acute arrhythmia, stroke, and acute coronary syndromes. Important concepts taught include BLS survey, high-quality CPR, ACLS survey and algorithms, effective resuscitation team dynamics, and immediate post-cardiac arrest care. The course is not designed as a complete course in arrhythmia recognition or pharmacology. It is designed only to review those subjects. Therefore, if the registrant has little or no background in these areas, it is highly recommended that he or she take a rhythm recognition course first. In pharmacology, he or she should spend several hours reviewing current cardiovascular pharmacology. Upon successful completion of an ACLS Provider Course, the participant should be able to: • Recognize and initiate early management of peri-arrest conditions that may result in cardiac arrest or complicate resuscitation outcome; • Demonstrate proficiency in providing BLS care, including prioritizing chest compressions and integrating AED use; • Recognize and manage respiratory arrest; • Recognize and manage cardiac arrest until termination of resuscitation or transfer of care, including immediate post-cardiac arrest care; • Recognize and initiate early management of acute coronary syndromes and stroke, including appropriate disposition; and • Demonstrate effective communication as a member or leader of a resuscitation team and recognize the impact of team dynamics on overall team performance.
The AHA developed the ACLS Provider Course for “currently active” healthcare providers (e.g., medical, nursing, emergency medical or allied health personnel) whose daily occupation or volunteer activities demand proficiency in the knowledge and skills of ACLS. Others may be admitted into the course by discretion of the Course Director.
