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.

The American Heart Association’s Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) Programs deliver a dynamic message of hope — the hope of saving lives. New treatments have improved the possibility of survival from cardiovascular emergencies, cardiac arrest, and stroke. These new treatments offer the hope of improved quality of life for people who suffer these events.
Increasing public awareness of the importance of early intervention and ensuring greater public access to defibrillation will save many lives. ECC programs train more than 18 million people every year by educating healthcare providers, caregivers, and the general public on how to respond to these emergencies.
About 88 percent of people who experience out-of-hospital cardiac arrest do not survive to hospital discharge. Immediate CPR can double, or even triple, a victim’s chance of survival.
The ECC Programs Department is responsible for implementing program initiatives, and providing guidance and support to the ECC Training Network. The ECC Mission supports this responsibility.
The Mission of the American Heart Association's ECC Program is to reduce disability and death from acute circulatory and respiratory emergencies, including stroke, by improving the chain of survival in every community and in every health care system. ECC Guiding Philosophy
Each year in the United States, more than 500,000 people suffer from cardiac arrest…less than 15% survive. Approximately 75-80% of cardiac arrests happen outside of hospital. Bystander involvement and performance of high quality CPR becomes crucial in a sudden collapse. There are many factors that contribute to survival, however administering high quality CPR prolongs likely hood of survival. CPR can double or triple a cardiac arrest victims chance of survival---if it's given immediately.
On June 20th 2017, a group of more than 30 people gathered to learn about the importance and proper administration of CPR. With the lead instructor of Moshe Simkhayev, the group has successfully learned what to do as first response in case of cardiac arrest in adults, children and infants.
To make it a greater awareness, we will be launching further events in our community in order to make a difference and be able to reach out to as many people as we can. Because saving a life is that moment that you return a loved one to their family which can never be measures in gratitude. You can make a difference!
Stay tuned for further event updates.
