Advanced cardiac life support , or advanced cardiovascular life support , often referred to by its abbreviation as " ACLS ", refers to a set of clinical algorithms for the urgent treatment of cardiac arrest , stroke , myocardial infarction , and other life-threatening cardiovascular emergencies. Only qualified health care providers can provide ACLS, as it requires the ability to manage the person's airway, initiate vascular access, read and interpret electrocardiograms , and understand emergency pharmacology; these include physicians , pharmacists , dentists , advanced practice providers physician assistants and nurse practitioners , respiratory therapists, nurses, paramedics and advanced emergency medical technicians. Other emergency responders may also be trained. Another important link is early defibrillation , which has improved greatly with the widespread availability of automated external defibrillators AEDs. ACLS often starts with analyzing the patient's heart rhythms with a manual defibrillator. In contrast to an AED in BLS, where the machine makes the determination as to when to defibrillate shock a patient, the ACLS team leader makes those decisions based on rhythms on the monitor and the patient's vital signs.
Physicians, nurses, and paramedics have carefully crafted these provider manuals using the latest American Heart Association guidelines and peer-reviewed, primary medical literature. We are so confident in the quality of our provider manuals, that we let you review them before you sign up for an ACLS Medical Training course. There are units covering rhythm recognition and the use of defibrillators and cardiovascular medications in ACLS. There are units covering rhythm recognition and the use of defibrillators and cardiovascular medications in PALS. The BLS Provider Manual provides a detailed description of basic life support in patients of all sizes including infant, children, and adults. Special attention is placed on airway management for BLS providers.
