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

ACLS TRAINING DATE Jan. 26 - 28, 2009 Feb. 18 - 20, 2009 Mar. 24 - 26, 2009 April 28 - 30, 2009 May 26 - 28, 2009 June 23 - 25, 2009 July 14 - 16, 2009 Aug. 25 - 27, 2009 Sept. 22 - 24, 2009 Oct. 27 - 29, 2009 Nov. 24 - 26, 2009 Dec. 14 - 16, 2009

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: Total training time: Training Fee: None 16 hours Php 2,000.00 PALS TRAINING DATE Mar. 18 - 20, 2009 June 15 & 16, 2009 Sept. 16 - 17, 2009
