ADVANCED CARDIAC LIFE SUPPORT

Comprehensive and very challenging, the Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) training
course incorporates all the theoretical and practical aspects of resuscitation. It includes lectures
on BLS, ECG interpretation, and the pharmacologic administration of critical drugs

The course also includes small group discussions on basic core cases in ACLS. Participants here
tackle the prudent use of algorithms recommended by the American Heart Association
(AHA), and the American College of Cardiology (ACC) in each of the respective core cases.
The course also boasts of skills and testing stations using state of the art training aids where
participants are taught intubation, defibrillation, and arrhythmia recognition.

ACLS is for medical and paramedical professionals with a working knowledge in BLS and ECG reading interested in
further their knowledge and advanced resuscitation principles and techniques.

Target Participants: Medical and Paramedical Healthcare Professionals


Pre-requisite course: BLS and Basic ECG
Total training time: 20 Hours
Training Fee: Php 3,600.00
Validity: 2 years

PEDIATRIC ADVANCED LIFE SUPPORT

The program on Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) at the Philippine Heart Center was
initially incorporated in the ACLS. In November 2006, a group of PALS-trained pediatric
cardiologists and pulmonologists initiated the PALS program as a separate course with the objective
of providing more extensive approach to pediatric resuscitation.

The PALS program is a 16 hour course which caters to medical (nurses, medical student, interns and
doctors) and paramedical personnel who are interested in furthering their knowledge on pediatric
resuscitation.

The course includes lectures on recognition of respiratory failure and shock, fluid therapy and medications, cardiac rhythm
disturbances, trauma and newborn resuscitation, integration of cases and post arrest stabilization.

There are also skill stations on pediatric basic life support airway and ventilation, and vascular access using state of the art
training materials.

We have computerized mega-code wherein we show actual ECG tracing and make of the state-of-the-art mannequin
simulating an actual pediatric patient needing resuscitation.

Likewise, there are interactive sessions, which are held to integrate knowledge and skills into a clinically useful discipline.

At the end of this program, each participant is then expected to be competent and knowledgeable in the following:

 Basic Life Support ( Pediatric CPR, management of foreign body aspiration )


 Pediatric Intubations and resuscitation (including newborns)
 Interpretation and management of common pediatric arrhythmias
 Vascular Access
 Common medications used in resuscitation

We recommend this course, which is accredited by the Philippine Pediatric Society, to all those interested in enhancing
their knowledge and skills in pediatric resuscitation.

Pre-requisite course: None


Total training time: 16 hours
Training Fee: Php 2,000.00
