20-3554 HeartCode® Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) Online

Part # 20-3554 HeartCode ACLS Online is the AHA’s blended learning delivery method that uses adaptive learning technology for the AHA’s ACLS Course. HeartCode ACLS Online delivers quality resuscitation education by utilizing a variety of eLearning assets such as dramatizations, Cognitive Assessment Activities, illustrations, knowledge checks and interactive activities. This self-pace delivery method provides learners a personalized learning path that adapts in real time to the learner’s performance. Debriefings and coaching are provided immediately after each knowledge check and each Cognitive Assessment Activity. ACLS Instructors no longer need to assign pre-work, selfassessments, and final exams separately, as they typically would through Instructor-Led training. This method of learning provides training consistency and adaptability to different learning styles. Providers first complete the cognitive portion of HeartCode ACLS Online and then complete a hands-on skills session with an AHA ACLS Instructor or on a simulation station, using voice assisted manikins with real-time audio and visual feedback. Upon successful completion of the online portion of HeartCode ACLS Online, a certificate of completion will be issued, and can be printed in English only.

This course includes a drop-down menu that allows the learner to take the course in one of three languages: U.S. English, IVE, and Portuguese. Included in HeartCode ACLS Online is a translated version of the ACLS Provider Manual eBook (Based on the language selected). For all languages selected, the course will reference the imperial system, and other U.S. based terminology. This does not apply to IVE.

Course Description:

The AHA’s ACLS Course has been updated to reflect new science in the 2020 AHA Guidelines for CPR and ECC, as well as the 2019 Update to the 2018 ASA Ischemic Stroke Guidelines. The ACLS Course teaches the importance of preventing cardiac arrest, high-performance teams, continuous high-quality CPR, systems of care, recognition and intervention of cardiopulmonary arrest, post-cardiac arrest care, acute dysrhythmias, stroke, and acute coronary syndromes (ACS).

Course Learning Objectives:

After successfully completing the ACLS Course, students should be able to

  • Define systems of care
  • Apply the BLS, Primary, and Secondary Assessments sequence for a systematic evaluation of adult patients
  • Discuss how the use of a rapid response team (RRT) or medical emergency team (MET) may improve patient outcomes
  • Discuss early recognition and management of ACS, including appropriate disposition
  • Discuss early recognition and management of stroke, including appropriate disposition
  • Recognize bradycardias and tachycardias that may result in cardiac arrest or complicate resuscitation outcome
  • Perform early management of bradycardias and tachycardias that may result in cardiac arrest or complicate resuscitation outcome
  • Model effective communication as a member or leader of a high-performance team
  • Recognize the impact of team dynamics on overall team performance
  • Recognize respiratory arrest • Perform early management of respiratory arrest
  • Recognize cardiac arrest
  • Perform prompt, high-quality BLS including prioritizing early chest compressions and integrating early automated external defibrillator (AED) use
  • Perform early management of cardiac arrest until termination of resuscitation or transfer of care, including immediate post–cardiac arrest care
  • Evaluate resuscitative efforts during a cardiac arrest through continuous assessment of CPR quality, monitoring the patient’s physiologic response, and delivering real-time feedback to the team.

Course Card (issued upon successful course completion):

ACLS Provider eCard

AHA provider eCards are available for purchase only to authorized AHA Training Center Coordinators. Training Centers are responsible for allocating and/or monitoring eCards for Training Sites.
