It serves as the primary training material for ACLS Certification and Recertification courses.

Information covered in the handbook includes ACLS instruction for adults and children through multiple case scenarios. Case scenarios include, but are not limited to, respiratory arrest, ventricular fibrillation, and bradycardia. Specific ACLS algorithms and more are also included within the handbook.

horribly incomplete and occasionally incorrect

I am an RN and an ACLS provider and have been for many years. I thought listening to this audiobook would be a nice way of keeping fresh. however there is very little useful information included in this audiobook and most horribly they refer to the ABCs of resuscitation, focusing on airway first, completely ignoring the American Heart association's recommendations that circulation (CAB) be the primary focus of resuscitation attempt. Even though it was inexpensive I would not waste a few dollars on it and feel disturbed that it was written by a physician.

NOT the AHA course!

This didn’t prepare me for taking the AHA ACLS class. There were a couple of glaringly obvious mistakes also.
Basically useless.

Acls

The content of this book was very good but the person talking is going so fast you miss half of the content, there is no pauses to listen and absorb the content even the questions were really hard to keep up with, there are other audio books far better than this which is a shame especially just down to the speaker. Hard er for me as I am in the uk and USA drugs are different
