This course is based on "Anesthesia Advanced Circulatory Life Support," by doctors, Andrea Gabrielli, Vivek Moitra, Gerald Maccioli, and corresponding author Michael F. O'Connor.
The course includes multiple scenarios where participants have the opportunity to make "first response" decisions to cardiac situations in the OR. Like first responders in other professions, anesthesiologists are the first responders to cardiac arrest in the OR and patients rely on their ability to be prepared to identify and manage treatment, even though the incidents of life threatening conditions rarely occur.
The course is divided into five lessons. Completion of the course includes lessons one through four and three scenarios of your choice from lesson five. The course objectives are to help you explore and resolve OR scenarios that will improve your awareness, knowledge and skills in identifying signs and symptoms, and outlining appropriate measures for managing cardiac situations in the OR.
Please Note: This course is NOT part of ACLS Certification.
