Join us for the advanced and fascinating American Heart Association ACLS EP
 
The goal of the Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support for the Experienced Provider (ACLS EP) Course is to improve outcomes in complex cardiovascular, respiratory and other emergencies by expanding on core resuscitation guidelines and encouraging critical thinking and decision-making strategies. Through instruction and active participation in case-based scenarios, learners enhance their skills in the differential diagnosis and treatment of prearrest, arrest, and post arrest patients.
 
The program of instruction uses case-based scenarios and simulation to move beyond the algorithms and allow participants how to apply critical thinking to quickly reach a differential diagnosis and effectively manage advanced treatment/interventions.  It includes cases involving pharmacology, toxicology, cardiac, respiratory, and metabolic cases, so the course can be customized to best meet the needs of advanced level partipants who have taken ACLS in the past.
 
Once registered, we'll email you a test access key for the ACLS Provider exam that you will complete before class, at your own pace, allowing more time to interact with scenaios and simulation during the course!
 
This single day course satisfies your ACLS requirements, so why not upgrade your current ACLS card to an ACLS EP card today!
 
Once registered, you'll receive an automatic email response with all the course information and directions for the class. If you don't see our email, check your junk folder. Call us for any help - (855) 739-2257.
 
Join us for this great experience!

Patient Survival, Patient Safety, Risk Management, Hospital Certification, Hospital Award Programs and Accountable Care depend on highly trained, coordinated, and documented resuscitation management, with increased neurologically intact survival.

Key to this goal is the establishment of personnel trained to the current science of resuscitation, provided through a program of education which improves competencies and skills attainment.

The Current Concepts in Resuscitation seminar is a CME program teaching the resuscitation care skills needed to best manage the acutely decompensating patient in the hospital, critical care, emergency department, outpatient clinic, and prehospital environment. 

Specifically designed for physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, emergency and critical care nurses, and paramedics involved in potential or real resuscitation environments.  This unique course gives the participant a structure and process to feel confident caring for the critically ill patient.  Experienced faculty use a blend of interactive case-based lectures, academic lectures, and group simulation to model the philosophies of resuscitation, and clarify lifesaving high risk, low frequency skills.

Speakers use a blend of interactive case-based lectures, academic lectures, and group simulation to lead the attendees in the goal directed management of sepsis, multiple trauma, undifferentiated shock, cardiac and respiratory failure. From the initial resuscitation, to the first critical hours of stabilization this seminar provides the participant with the confidence and skills to optimize patient safety and outcomes.

The mission of Current Concepts in Resuscitation is to educate physicians and other providers, in accordance with the current international standards in resuscitation and current research on the horizon, thereby preparing them to best manage the rapidly decompensating patient in need of resuscitation, while working to improve the confidence and skills of medical providers to optimize patient outcomes.

This is a customized training program geared to support the student or organzaitional needs. 

Please contact our offices to confirm the nature and scope of class before signing up. 

 

  • Payments are accepted online. Financial aid is available. 

This course presents the student with an introductory overview related to the anatomy and physiology of the heart, explores normal electrical conduction as well as common variations as evidenced by changes in the waveform on the cardiac monitoring device, and provides the learner with the knowledge to enable them to interpret basic ECG waveforms, including high risk telemetry situations.

Ultrasound – Basic Training Workshop

Course Introduction:  

There is an evolving spectrum of training in clinical US from undergraduate medical education through post-graduate training, where skills are introduced, applications are learned, core concepts are reinforced and new applications and ideas evolve in the life-long practice of US in emergency and critical care medicine.

Competency in EUS requires the progressive development and application of increasingly sophisticated knowledge and psychomotor skills for an expanding number of emergency and critical care ultrasound (EUS) applications. This development parallels the performance of any EUS exam.

The ACEP definition of US competency includes the following components:

  1. The clinician needs to recognize the indications and contraindications for the EUS exam.
  2. The clinician must be able to acquire adequate images. This begins with an understanding of basic US physics, translated into the skills needed to operate the US system correctly (knobology), while performing exam protocols on patients presenting with different conditions and body habitus.
  3. Simultaneous with image acquisition, the clinician needs to interpret the imaging by distinguishing between normal anatomy, common variants, as well as a range of pathology from obvious to subtle.
  4. The clinician must be able to integrate EUS exam findings into individual patient care plans and management.

The Ultrasound Basic Training Workshop is designed to meet the minimum requirements laid out in the ACEP Emergency Ultrasound Section and emphasize the integration of ultrasound into patient assessment and goal directed therapy.

The Ultrasound Basic Training Workshop at The Resuscitation Group is guaranteed to be a small group experience with ample user time with the ultrasound devices.

Course length:             16 hours

Course Fee:                 $450 usd

Course Objectives:

  1. Participants will review a basic approach to ultrasound physics.
  2. Participants will be able to demonstrate the operation of the ultrasound with the correct pressure, alignment, tilt, and anatomical orientation to provide a proper ultrasound image suitable for interpretation.
  3. Participants will be able distinguish between normal anatomy, common variants, and abnormal finding in specific standard exams.
  4. Participants will be able to demonstrate a BLUE Protocol Exam.
  5. Participants will demonstrate the RUSH Exam.
  6. Participants will be able to demonstrate a CAUSE Exam.
  7. Participants will be able to demonstrate the FOCUS exam.
  8. Participants will be able to demonstrate the examination of the eye.
  9. Participants will be able to demonstrate the examination of the trachea and major vessels of the neck.
  10. Participants will demonstrate peripheral vascular access using the ultrasound.

Target audience:  Healthcare providers who work within emergency or critical care environments.
