BLS (Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers)
This course is for Healthcare Professionals who need to know how to perform CPR, as well as other lifesaving skills, in a wide variety of in-hospital and out-of-hospital settings. This course is often required by many hospitals or schools related to the medical field. Individuals such as nursing students, EMT students, PA students and others will very likely be required to be certified in BLS before or during school sessions. Although this course is designed for healthcare providers, the general public is welcomed to take the course.
HSAED (Heartsaver CPR AED)
This course is for anyone with limited or no medical training who needs to know how to perform CPR or to obtain a certificate for CPR to meet job, regulatory or other requirements. This course is highly recommended for daycare workers, school teachers, security personnel, summer camp workers, baby sitters and construction workers. This course is NOT designed for healthcare providers.
ACLS (Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support)
This course is designed for healthcare professionals who either direct or participate in the management of cardiopulmonary arrest and other cardiovascular emergencies. This includes personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care and critical care units. The instructor in this course will highlight the importance of team dynamics and communication, systems of care and immediate post-cardiac-arrest care. It also covers airway management and related pharmacology. In this course, skills are taught in large, group sessions and small, group learning and testing stations where case-based scenarios are presented.
PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support)
This course is designed for healthcare professionals who respond to emergency in infants and children. These include personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care, and critical care units such as physicians, nurses, paramedics and others who need a PALS course completion card for job or other requirements. The instructor in this course will use a series of simulated pediatric emergencies to reinforce the important concepts of a systemic approach to a pediatric assessment, basic life support, PALS treatment algorithms, effective resuscitation and team dynamics. The goal of the PALS course is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children, resulting in improved outcomes.
ECG and Pharmacology (Electrocardiogram and Pharmacology)
This classroom-based, facilitator-led course is designed to improve electrocardiogram (ECG) recognition skills. We recommend this as a pre-course option for ACLS students and other healthcare providers. This course is especially useful for students who plan to take ACLS but are weak in ECG recognition. This course also covers pharmacology within the ACLS algorithms.
IV Cert. (Intravenous Certification)
Instruction in insertion of traditional over the needle cannula peripheral aka “short” intravenous catheters. Instruction includes the insertion procedure, techniques for proper and successful catheter insertions, and care, assessment, and maintenance post catheter insertion.
NRP (Neonatal Resuscitation Program)
This course is an educational program jointly sponsored by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the American Heart Association (AHA). The course has been designed to teach an evidence-based approach to resuscitation of newborns, to hospital staff who care for newborns at the time of delivery, including physicians, nurses, and respiratory therapists.
In this course students will be able to learn and demonstrate the various methods of Phlebotomy such as vacuum method for venous blood withdrawal, an autolet blood withdrawal for glucose level, the proper use of a microhematocrit centrifuge, proper use of a hemogloginometer and obtain a hemoglobin level. In addition, students will learn the proper use of a glucometer to obtain a glucose level, identify and label the parts of the most common diagnostic laboratory equipment, and use basic skills in context of therapeutic and lab procedures.
Certified EKG Technicians can often be found at hospitals, clinics, or private practices. EKG Tech’s general responsibilities are to perform electrocardiograms, work with in or out patients who may experience chest pains or other signs of cardiac problems or may be asked to help diagnose and monitor cardiac problems in patients. Companies that provide pre-employment physicals or insurance physicals may also hire EKG Technicians to determine pre-existing cardiac problems. Home care givers may also find this course useful if there is a need to care for at-home patients with ECG monitors. The EKG Technician course is not only meant for individuals who would like to obtain a position as an EKG Technician, other professionals such as: EMTs, and paramedics also take this course to enhance their knowledge in EKG’s and to perform full 12-lead EKG examinations.
Teach employees how bloodborne pathogens are spread and how to help prevent exposure incidents by following work practice controls. Topics include engineering controls, personal protective equipment, personal hygiene cleaning/disinfecting equipment and supplies, and recognizing, reporting and following up on employee exposures to infectious materials.
Rapid Stemi ID
Rapid STEMI ID is a self-directed, online course that teaches healthcare professionals to use a 12-lead ECG, interpret electrocardiograms (ECGs) for signs of STEMI (ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction) and activate a system of care for rapid reperfusion of an occluded coronary artery.
Rhythm Adult is an online, self-directed course that introduces healthcare providers to normal cardiac rhythms and prepares them to recognize basic cardiac arrhythmias in clinical practice. From the course, healthcare providers improve their skill in ECG rhythm recognition, which is a key skill required to successfully determine a patient’s condition, know which algorithm to apply, and provide better patient treatment.
Rhythm Pediatric is a self-directed, online course that introduces healthcare providers to normal pediatric cardiac rhythms and prepares them to recognize basic pediatric cardiac arrhythmias in clinical practice. The course allows healthcare providers to gain proficiency in pediatric ECG rhythm recognition in an effort to provide better patient treatment and save more lives.
