Latest Course update: August 2017

The ALS Core workshop was developed by a team of emergency physicians, rural GPs, nurse and paramedic educators.

Management of cardiac arrest is a critical skill for all health professionals. Regular updates are essential for maintaining the knowledge and practical skills required for CPR. In the following modules we draw upon the most recent Australian Resuscitation Council recommendations to review the approach to the patient with suspected cardiac arrest. For each topic an eTutorial is used to introduce the topic and provides a useful background to work through the clinical case scenario.

The course covers:

1. Diagnosis of cardiac arrest

2. Procedure and algorithm for basic life support

3. Cardiac arrest rhythms

4. Algorithm for advanced life support

5. Procedure for defibrillation

6. Post resuscitation care
