Chapel Hill, NC (PRWEB) September 14, 2011
The ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) Certification Institute has launched an all-new free ACLS algorithms page to assist medical professionals with ACLS training and test preparation. ACLS algorithms are a series of step-by-step instructions for the assessment and management of cardiac arrest and other medical emergencies.
ACLS algorithms must be memorized by a number of medical professionals who are involved in Advanced Cardiac Life Support patient management. Physicians, registered nurses, EMTs, respiratory therapists, and other medical professionals are tested on ACLS algorithms and other ACLS topics every two years and are required to hold a current ACLS certification.
The new ACLS algorithms resource on ACLScertification.com is intended to assist these and other medical professionals in preparing for their ACLS exam. Each ACLS algorithm is displayed in an easy to follow step-by-step format. The new algorithms resource is based on the latest 2010 American Heart Association ACLS guidelines.
The ACLS Certification Institute provides online ACLS certification and recertification and tests its trainees on the latest 2010 AHA ACLS algorithms and other ACLS topics. Trainees are required to take a 75 question multiple-choice examination which contains questions on the algorithms and how they are applied to various clinical scenarios.
The simplified step-by-step format of the ACLS algorithms resource is effective for memorization. However, the algorithms are not universal and do not to apply to every clinical circumstance. The ACLS algorithms resource should only be used as a guide and is not intended to replace good clinical judgment. It is also not intended to be a substitute for clinical ACLS training.
The ACLS Certification Institute has also recently launched an ACLS resources page which contains general information on a variety of ACLS related topics such as ACLS online training, ACLS test preparation, subjects that are commonly covered in an ACLS course, and more.
Although most medical professionals have traditionally trained offline, there is a large and increasing interest in online ACLS training. The new ACLS resource provides the general public and medical professionals with answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about ACLS and online ACLS training.
The ACLS Certification Institute will continue to add topics to its ACLS resources page over the next several weeks as it expands its online library. Visitors to the site are welcome to request topics or ask questions, and the most popular questions will be answered. Visitors are also welcome to suggest their ideas on other ACLS resources that they would like to see on the instituteÃ¢s website.
Note: medical professionals and other visitors are required to abide by the terms of service of the ACLS Certification InstituteÃ¢s website if they wish to use the ACLS algorithms resource or any other resource on the site. The terms of service can be read at http://www.aclscertification.com/terms.php
The ACLS Certification Institute is the nation’s leader in online ACLS training and a provider of both ACLS certification and recertification online. The ACLS Certification Institute was created and endorsed by Georgetown Medical Center and UNC Chapel Hill medical doctors. More information can be found at ACLScertification.com
