ALS-2 Course Content:
The ALS-2 course is very intensive and candidates are sent an ALS-2 manual prior to the course. Candidates are required to complete a pre-course multiple choice question paper to guide preparation.
The ALS-2 course teaches the knowledge and skills as follows:
• Recognition, assessment and management of the deteriorating patient using a structured ABCDE approach (aiming to prevent cardiac arrest).
• Treat cardiac and/or respiratory arrest, including manual defibrillation.
• Management of life-threatening arrhythmias.
• Preparing and planning for post resuscitation care.
• Care for the deteriorating patient or patient in cardiac and/or respiratory arrest in special circumstances such as anaphylaxis.
• Lead a team, work as a team member, and use structured communication skills including giving an effective handover.
• Consideration for end-of-life decision making.
Candidates who successfully complete the course will receive an Australian Resuscitation Council ALS2 certificate valid for 4 years.
Please note: Candidates must attend the entire face-to-face elements of the ALS-2 course. A candidate’s competency is assessed during the course and a multiple-choice exam is marked. A candidate is not guaranteed an automatic pass merely for attending the course.
Candidates who successfully complete the course will receive an Australian Resuscitation Council ALS1 certificate valid for 4 years.
