About this Course
Are you proficient in resuscitation skills?
Do you have knowledge of current resuscitation guidelines and research?
Do you have the clinical skills to manage an adult cardiac arrest?
Are you expected to be a competent Advanced Life Support (ALS) provider?
The EMSET Advanced Life Support (ALS) one day course is based on ANZCOR Guidelines and best practice principles.
The course provides remote health clinicians/workforce with the skills required that contribute to a successful outcome after a cardiac arrest.
Clinicians will learn the importance of early rhythm recognition, CPR, defibrillation and post-resuscitation care in the context of a remote and isolated setting.
EMSET encourages health care clinicians to apply ALS knowledge and skills acquired within the context of the policies of their employing health service.
Who is this course for?
The ALS one day course is designed to facilitate a personalised learning experience for the remote and isolated clinician (Nurses, Midwives, Paramedics, and Medical Officers) who may be required to provide ALS. This ALS course is contextualised for the remote and isolated setting with limited resources. The one day face to face workshop enables clinicians to practice and develop their clinical skills in a simulated environment under the guidance of highly experienced ALS instructors.
EMSET recommends that ALS be completed every two years and suggest that BLS be completed prior to undertaking the ALS course.
If you have any queries about the course or its relevance to your practice, please contact us.
The EMSETAdvanced Life Support one day course consists of the following:
Online pre-course learning and assessments that must be completed one week before the course:
Advanced Life Support online theory modules and assessment — approx. 8 hours of study
Attendance at a one day workshop consisting of lectures, skill stations and practical based scenarios
An individual scenario based assessment
On successful completion of this course, clinicians will be able to:
Understand the important of early recognition of a deteriorating patient using the ABCDE approach.
Deliver standardised adult CPR following the ALS algorithm.
Manage a cardiac arrest specific to rural and isolated environments.
Consider the relevant causes of a cardiopulmonary arrest in adults and treat reversible causes.
Maintain high quality CPR with minimal interruptions.
Promptly recognise and treat shockable and non-shockable rhythms.
Understand the post resuscitation care required.
Demonstrate accurate documentation and communicate a clear concise handover of findings and interventions using the ISBAR approach
