    Event Details of Basic Life Support (BLS) Courses

    Course materials:

    Basic Life Support (BLS) for healthcare providers Course materials (AHA student’s manual ) will be provided to each participant prior to the scheduled course date (at least one week prior) for the participants to read and understand the manual for optimal preparation for the course to maximize the concept on emergency cardiac care and development of BLS skills through video presentation and instructor led training workshop.

    Course Duration:  One day (8 hours) Hands on practice and evaluation.

    Manikin and Participant Ratio: One adult/child manikin and one infant manikin, one adult bag-mask device, and one infant bag-mask device will be assigned for each group of 2 / 3 participants, and one pocket mask will be assigned to each participant during the course/workshop.

    Instructor Participant Ratio: One instructor will be assigned to every 6 (six) participants for optimum training during the course.

    Evaluation:  At the end of the course, each participant will be evaluated by a written exam (MCQ) and their practice will be observed for skills evaluation.  Draw back will be discussed at the end so that participants will have the opportunity to know their mistakes.  

    Certification:  Successful participants will receive BLS course completion certificate from American Heart Association (AHA), USA.

     

    (B) ACLS:

    The course is designed to give participants the opportunity to practice and demonstrate proficiency in the following skills used in resuscitation:

    •  BLS and ACLS survey overview of the Systematic approach,

    •  Airway management, simple airway adjuncts like Oropharyngeal,  Nasopharyngeal Airway, and advance airway management which includes Intubation techniques of Laryngeal Mask Airway (LMA), Esophageotracheal Airway (Combitube), Esophageal Airway and Endotracheal Tube Airway (ETT).

    •  Effective Team Resuscitation Dynamics      

    •  Rhythm recognition and their management (simulation base):                                                                                                                                              

    • Arrest Rhythms – VT, VF, Asystole, PEA,                                                                                                                                                               

    • Tachycardia’s – stable and unstable,                                                                                                                                                                               

    • Bradycardia’s -  stable and unstable,                                                                            

    • AVblocks                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

    • Acute coronary Syndromes,                                                                                                                                                                                         

    • Acute Stoke

    •  Defibrillation

    •  Cardioversion

    • Transcutaneous pacing

    •  Intravenous (IV)/intraosseous (IO) access (information only)

    •  Use of medications

    Participants will practice the application of these and other skills in simulated cases and will practice both Team Leader and team member roles.

    Course materials:

    Advance Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) providers Course materials (AHA student’s manual ) will be provided to each participant prior to the scheduled course date (at least two weeks) for the participants to read and understand the manual for optimal preparation for the course to maximize the concept on emergency cardiac care and development of ACLS skills.

    Course Duration:  Two days (8 hours each day) and  prior attending the course online practices and self assessment as mandatory.

    Each day long workshop will have no more than 10 participants

    Evaluation:  At the end of the course, each participant will be evaluated by a written exam (MCQ 50qs) and  practical /  skills evaluation.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Draw back will be discussed at the end so that participants will have the opportunity to know their mistakes.  

    Certification:  Successful participants will receive ACLS course completion certificate from American Heart Association (AHA), USA.
