What Is ACLS?
ACLS is a technologically enhanced program for students learning to properly run a “code blue” management. Code blue is hospital dialect for someone who is having a cardiac arrest. Cardiac arrest is when the heart stops beating, a malfunction of the human body which can cause death within a few minutes. To stop the cardiac arrest, the heart must be electrocuted. This is a procedure which a paramedic must be well equipped with the knowledge to proceed.
Old School Teaching Methods:
Many students who train for a long time go through the same issue. When seeing a cardiac arrest happen for the first time, though they went through lessons and practice upon practice, when seeing the real deal they can go into panic mode and render themselves useless. If they don’t go into panic mode, a different problem can occur. Many times, when learning about a process or procedure, it is studied in 2 dimensional form. So, even though a student can be an A student on paper, it does not necessarily say he or she has grasped the idea.
The ACLS Generation:
ACLS is a program designed to eliminate this technicality. It works like this: The student goes through standard training, lessons, tests to see if the student is knowledgeable to continue, and a hands on course using manikins. The next step is where it gets helpful, fun and cool.
Similar to driving games on the computer, and the Sims, this is a simulation. The student gets the program on his or her computer and is given tasks. The tasks include the same tasks a professional would have in a real life given situation. The student receives a patient, and the responsibility to make sure the patient stays alive and well. The patient has different problems that need to be checked out. For example, the patient’s breathing needs to be monitored. The student must then click on the right options, according to the response the program gives, and make sure this patient stays alive.
The course is then ended with a hands on, dummy using approach, along with many students. The student is tested in that way for his or her knowledge on the subject, ability to act under pressure, and easy approach.
ACLS training courses are the beginning of a new era. Not only is the training better and more realistic, it is also easier to concentrate on, more fun, and a student who is having a hard time sitting and writing can still have the option of getting to his or her First Aid goal. Other life related courses should definitely look into this style to ultimately get the perfect students who can perform in real time.
