Equivalent to Level 2 ALS
This is an ADVANCED life support course - not level one. You must demonstrate an advanced level of 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 in regards the difference between a collapse and a cardiac arrest. To elaborate; unconsciousness (LOC) is a sign of many conditions, not necessarily a cardiac arrest. For example, head injury, epilepsy, overdose and many others. You do not perform cardiac compressions unless the patient has a loss of cardiac output due to cardiac arrest. Assessment prior to action is a must - this means check for a pulse. Only if pulseless do you perform cardiac compressions. You must show an understanding of this basic knowledge before we are able to award accreditation.
The course is endorsed by Australian College of Nursing (ACN) and is conducted over one day, with a pre-reading component and online video presentations. It reflects the latest Australia New Zealand Committee of Resuscitation (ANZCOR) 2016 guidelines relating to advanced life support.
The course also earns you 7 Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) points.
