Dear Colleagues,
       AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION BLS AND ACLS

Thank you for your interest in Crisiscare’s AHA courses. At present we are
offering Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers, Advanced Cardiac Life
Support and International Trauma life Support.

BLS for Healthcare Providers:
BLS for HCP is an 6-hour course aimed at pre-hospital and in-hospital healthcare
workers, e.g. doctors, nurses, paramedics and allied personnel. It covers
international guidelines and the latest recommendations on:
     CPR for adults, children and infants, including use of the BVM
     Using an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
     Management of the obstructed airway
On registration the candidate will receive a BLS for HCP manual and a CD Rom,
which also includes video clips. The candidate will be expected to achieve 85%
for a written entry test. On successful completion of the course, the candidate
will be issued with a BLS for Healthcare Providers card and a CPD certificate
for 14 points, which is a pre-requisite for the AHA Advanced Life Support
courses.

Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support:
The ACLS is a 2-day, hands-on learning experience, which focuses on
management of cardiac arrest and various peri-arrest conditions.

Course Outline:
   Advanced airway management, including invasive and non-invasive
     devices and techniques.
   The major ACLS emergency conditions, including VT, VF, PEA, asystole,
     the tachicardias and bradicardias, and acute ischemic heart disease.
   Electrical therapy, including defibrillation, cardioversion and pacing
   Invasive therapeutic and monitoring techniques
   Special resuscitation situations, including stroke management and ethical
     considerations.

Entry Requirement:

       Current registration as a Medical or Dental Practitioner, Intern, Junior
        intern, Professional Nurse or Paramedic.
       Valid Basic Life Support for Healthcare Provider Certificate or Valid
        Paediatric Advanced life Support Certificate
       Successful completion of the pre-course self-assessment module on the
        CD Rom.
     On successful completion, candidates will be:

                   Issued with an American Heart Association ACLS Provider Card and
                   Accredited by the HPCSA of SA of 34 Continuing Professional
                    Development points (including 4 points for medical ethics).
                   Credited points towards selected College of Medicine examinations (e.g.
                    Diploma in Primary Emergency Care)

     The ACLS Provider Manual and Handbook of Emergency Cardiovascular Care
     are supplied prior to ACLS participation. We recommend that you allow 1-2
     months study time to prepare for the course. A multiple choice question entry
     test will be written on the first day, with a pass mark of 85%.
