FREE Heart Rhythm Refresher Courses at Saving American Hearts, Inc 6165 Lehman Drive Suite 202 Colorado Springs, Colorado 80918.
FREE Heart Rhythm Refresher - CLASSROOM at Saving American Hearts, Inc 6165 Lehman Drive Suite 202 Colorado Springs, Colorado 80918.
This free heart rhythm refresher course is a classroom course that covers basic ECG measurements, basic arrhythmias and the administration of appropriate drugs within the American Heart Association (AHA) Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) algorithms.
This Course has been updated to reflect the 2015 AHA Guidelines for CPR and ECC. This classroom-based, Facilitator-led course is designed to improve electrocardiogram (ECG) recognition skills and pharmacology knowledge for treating cardiovascular emergencies.
This course is for healthcare professionals who participate in the management of cardiopulmonary arrest or other cardiovascular emergencies. This includes personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care and critical care units such as physicians, nurses, paramedics, and others who require this specialized knowledge for their job.
* Basic electrophysiology
* Normal ECG measurements
* Basic arrhythmias
* Administration of appropriate drugs within the ACLS
This course was created because ECG recognition skills and drug treatment knowledge have been identified as key gaps in knowledge for Advanced Cardiac Life Support students.
The American Heart Association recognized that without strong competency in either ECG recognition or drug treatment knowledge related to the ACLS algorithms, achievement of ACLS certification for the healthcare provider is more difficult.
As a result, this course was created to address those knowledge gaps and serve as a precourse option for ACLS students who have been identified through the ACLS Precourse Self-assessment as needing to improve ECG recognition skills and drug treatment, or for ACLS students who in general need to refresh their skills and knowledge. It was also created for anyone wanting to gain knowledge in ECG recognition and pharmacology.
This is an excellent Pre-Advanced Cardiac Life Support Course, or for those who work on monitored cardiac units.
Objectives for the ECG module:
1. Explain heart anatomy and basic electrophysiology
2. Explain normal ECG measurements
3. Recognize and understand basic arrhythmias
Objectives for the Pharmacology module:
1. Know basic ACLS drugs and usage
2. Understand drugs, doses and routes of administration during cardiovascular emergencies
3. Learn to integrate basic drug pharmacology into ACLS algorithms
This course is not a required course, but it is helpful to take before an Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) or Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) course. This is a FREE course through Saving American Hearts.
This course is NOT a 12-lead ECG course. This course teaches basic cardiac rhythms and pharmacology related to treating cardiac arrhythmias.
ECG recognition skills and drug treatment knowledge have been identified as key gaps in knowledge for ACLS students. AHA recognized that without strong competency in either
ECG recognition or drug treatment knowledge related to the ACLS algorithms, achievement of ACLS certification for the healthcare provider is more difficult.
There are no additional options for this course however you may take only the ECG portion or only the Pharmacology portion or both. There is no renewal course or initial course. You will receive an American Heart Association Certificate of Completion for this course. The American Heart Association does not issue a provider card for this course. This course is listed as “ECG & Pharmacology” on the AHA website.
