The Healthcare Training Academy presents:
ECG & Emergency Pharmacology (ACLS and PALS Pre-Course)
Click here to return to the AHA Programs Menu
The ECG and Pharmacology course is an excellent introduction to the ACLS and PALS curriculum. The ACLS and PALS courses no longer teach ECG and Pharmacology; students must know ECG and Pharmacology before attending these courses. This is a perfect course to bring you up to speed on ECG rhythm recognition, cardiac physiology, and pharmacology dosage and administration. Even if you are a practicing medical professional or fresh out of school, this course will boost your knowledge and confidence in dealing with cardiac emergencies. This program prepares you for the pre-test for ACLS and the PALS courses. The AHA requires you to score a 70% or higher to gain entry to their ACLS or PALS program(s). If you're not taking an ACLS or a PALS course, this is an excellent review to brush up on your ECG and Emergency Pharmacology skills!
Upon course completion, you will receive two certificates (ECG and Emergency Pharmacology).
• Heart anatomy
• Basic electrophysiology
• Normal ECG measurements
• Basic Arrhythmias
• Basic ACLS drugs and usage
• Drugs, doses, and routes of administration during cardiovascular emergencies
• Integrating basic drug pharmacology into ACLS algorithms
Audience: RNs, NPs, PAs, interns, students, and more.
