Advanced Cardiac Life Support Heartcode Part 2 Hands On Skills Testing Class June 19, 2015 12 PM to 2 PM at Saving American Hearts 6165 Lehman Drive Suite 209 Colorado Springs, Colorado 80918.

Advanced Cardiac Life Support ACLS skills session is the hands-on portion of an AHA eLearning course that includes Heartcode Parts 2 and 3 skills practice and testing.

This class is for those who have taken the Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) Heartcode Part 1 online course but still need the hands or practice and testing portion of the class called an ACLS Skills Session. This is also known as the Heartcode ACLS Parts 2 and 3. Part 2 is the hands on practice session, and Part 3 is the testing portion.

To come to this class you need to complete the Heartcode ACLS Part 1 online testing and bring that certificate with you to class.

Heartcode Part 2 consists of hands on practice Heartcode Part 3 is testing.

You may ask the instructor questions and practice until you are comfortable, before being tested.

You will be tested on your BLS Skills for 1 and 2 person rescuer on an adult and the use of an AED and 1 Megacode Scenario as well as one Bag-Mask Ventilation Scenario.



What is an ACLS Skills Test Like ?

You will first practice and then be tested on:

1). A Bag-Mask Ventilation Scenario

2). 1 Rescuer Adult CPR with a bag mask and AED

3). One Megacode scenario



Here are the details of each:

ACLS Bag Mask Ventilation Testing Checklist:

BLS Survey and Interventions

STEP 1:

Student Checks for responsiveness

* Taps and shouts, "Are you alright ?"

* Scans the chest for movement (5-10 seconds)

STEP 2:

Student activates the emergency response system and gets the AED OR Directs second rescuer to activate the emergency response system and get the AED

STEP 3:

Checks carotid pulse (5-10 seconds) Notes that pulse is present Does not initiate chest compressions or attach AED Performs ventilations at the correct rate of 1 breath every 5-6 seconds (10-12 breaths per minute) with a bag-mask device

Inserts oropharyngeal or nasopharyngeal airway Administers oxygen Performs correct bag-mask ventilation for 1 minute Gives proper ventilation-rate and volume

END OF BAG MASK VENTILATION SKILLS CHECK



ACLS CPR TESTING CHECKLIST

STEP 1:

Student Checks for responsiveness

* Taps and shouts, "Are you alright ?"

* Scans the chest for movement (5-10 seconds)

STEP 2:

Tells someone to activate the emergency response system and get the AED

STEP 3:

Checks carotid pulse (minimum 5 seconds: maximum 10 seconds)

STEP 4:

Bares patient's chest and locates CPR hand position

STEP 5:

Delivers first cycle of compressions at correct rate (acceptable: 18 seconds or less for 30 compressions)

STEP 6:

Gives 2 breaths each over 1 second

STEP 7:

Delivers second cycle of compressions at correct hand position (acceptable: greater than 23 of 30 compressions)

STEP 8:

Gives 2 breaths (1 second each) with visible chest rise

END OF ACLS CPR TESTING SKILLS CHECK





ACLS MEGACODE TESTING CHECKLIST

THERE ARE 6 DIFFERENT MEGACODE SCENARIOS YOU ONLY HAVE TO SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETE 1

Cases 1 and 2 are combined into a single megacode scenario

CASE 1 AND 2 Bradycardia to VF/Pulseless VT to Asystole to ROSC

Team Leader:

* Ensures high-quality CPR at all times

* Assigns team member roles

* Ensures that team members perform well

Bradycardia Management

* Starts oxygen if needed, places monitor, starts IV

* Places monitor leads in proper position

* Recognizes symptomatic bradycardia

* Administers correct dose of atropine

* Prepares for second-line treatment

VF/Pulseless VT Management

* Recognizes VF

* Clears before ANALYZE and SHOCK

* Immediately resumes CPR after shocks

* Appropriate airway management

* Appropriate cycles of drug-rhythm check/shock-CPR

* Administers appropriate drug(s) and doses

Asystole Management

* Recognizes Asystole

* Verbalizes potential reversible causes of asystole/PEA (H's and T's)

* Administers appropriate drug(s) and doses

* Immediately resumes CPR after rhythm checks

Post Cardiac Arrest Care

* Identifies ROSC

* Ensures BP and 12-lead ECG are performed, O2 saturation is monitored, verbalizes need for endotracheal intubation and waveform capnography, and orders laboratory tests
