Realistic simulations reinforce the following key concepts:

  • managing cardiac arrest
  • identifying and treating ischemic chest pain and acute coronary syndromes
  • recognizing other life-threatening clinical situations (such as stroke) and providing initial care
  • ACLS algorithms
  • effective resuscitation team dynamics

Course prerequisites:
