This course is ADVANCED life support (ALS) Level 2, this course is endorsed by the Australian College of Nursing, Australia (ACN). It is conducted over two full days, with a pre-reading component and online video presentations. It reflects the latest Australia and New Zealand Committee of Resuscitation (ANZCOR) guidelines relating to advanced life support.
You will be supported and coached by experienced facilitators to assist you to achieve advanced skills and knowledge. You must demonstrate advanced knowledge and skill to be awarded accreditation. Otherwise, we can only issue a certificate of attendance (non-accredited).
We have noted a lack of basic nursing knowledge in some candidates regarding the difference between a collapse and a cardiac arrest. To elaborate, unconsciousness (LOC) is a sign of many conditions, not necessarily a cardiac arrest, e.g., head injury, epilepsy and overdose, to name a few. You do not perform cardiac compressions unless the patient has a loss of cardiac output due to cardiac arrest.
Assessment before action is necessary – this means checking for a pulse. Only if pulseless do you perform cardiac compressions. You must show an understanding of this basic knowledge before we can award accreditation.
