ANESTHESIA-CENTRIC ACLS RENEWAL
Additional fee, registration required, lunch included, registration limited, four (4) AMA PRA Category I Credits™
The ACLS renewal course is a refresher course designed for health-care providers who have taken ACLS before and who either direct or participate in the resuscitation of a patient. In this course you will receive training in effective team behaviors and have the opportunity to practice as a team member and team leader. At the end of the course you will participate in a mega-code testing station. A simulated cardiac arrest scenario will test the knowledge of core case material and skills, knowledge of algorithms, understanding of arrhythmia interpretation and use of appropriate basic drug therapy. This course does not teach algorithms, ECG, or pharmacology information. If you do not understand the ECG and pharmacology information in the pre-course assessment tests, it is unlikely that you can successfully complete the ACLS renewal course.
Drs. Rajvinder Dhamrait, Anna Kowalczyk, Brian L. Pitts
