A-ACLS: First Response to Circulatory Crisis in the OR - 2018

THIS IS AN ONLINE ACTIVITY. Hard copies are not available.

Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) was originally developed as an extension of Basic Life Support (BLS) and focused on the resuscitation of individuals found unresponsive in the field. ACLS has been expanded to include immediate care in the emergency department and patients found unresponsive anywhere in the hospital. A-ACLS was created to address the unique aspects of the perioperative/periprocedural setting.  Originally created in 2012, and was updated in 2018 to reflect the  changes in the American Heart Association ACLS 2015 guidelines. The course includes multiple scenarios where participants have the opportunity to make "first response" decisions to cardiac situations in the OR.

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 physician anesthesiologists and care team members 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.

The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) have collaborated with the Society of Critical Care Anesthesiologists (SOCCA) to deliver this A-ACLS program.
