The ALS course is designed for healthcare professionals who need skills in advanced life support as part of their clinical duties, as well as those who teach these skills on a regular basis. This includes doctors, paramedics and nurses working in acute care areas (e.g. ED, CCU, ICU, HDU, operating theatres, acute medical admissions units) or on resuscitation/medical emergency/Critical Care Outreach teams.
During the course, the student will develop the knowledge and skills required to:
• Recognise and manage the deteriorating patient using a structured ABCDE approach
• Deliver standardised CPR in adults;
• Manage a cardiac arrest by working with a multidisciplinary team in an emergency situation
• Become an effective and confident team member and leader by utilising non-technical skills.
This course is to aid students career progression in a relevant profession.
