What you'll learn on the course
Our one-day workshop trains healthcare professionals in cardiopulmonary resuscitation, simple airway management and safe defibrillation (manual and/or AED). As a result, you'll be prepared to manage patients in cardiac arrest until the arrival of a cardiac arrest team - and to act as a member of that team.Untitled Page
The ILS course has been developed standardise much of the in-hospital training undertaken already by resuscitation officers. It consists of lectures and practical stations. The lectures cover:
- causes and prevention of cardiorespiratory arrest
- the ALS algorithm.
The practical stations are:
- the ABCDE approach
- initial resuscitation and defibrillation
- airway (with optional LMA)
- targeted training
There is one CASTeach demonstration. Emphasis is placed on managing patients until the arrival of the cardiac arrest team, then on participating as a member of that team. Assessement is continuous in nature, and the course is recognised for continuing professional development.
