Publisher's Summary

The Save a Life Initiative has just released its newest course: Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS). This manual is based on the 2015-2020 ACLS guidelines published by the American Heart Association. The Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) Provider Handbook is a comprehensive resource intended for health care professionals currently enrolled in an Advanced Cardiac Life Support Certification or Recertification Course. It serves as the primary training material for ACLS Certification and Recertification courses. Although it is primarily intended for use during their courses, the handbook was also created to serve as daily reference material for health care professionals. 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. All material included in this handbook is delivered in a manner meant to enhance learning in the most comprehensive and convenient way possible.

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.

Not worth the read

I used my credit for a review on ACLS before my recertification. I was disappointed to find out how basic the information was. More BLS than ACLS. Made me want my credit back.

Not enough details

This was narrated by someone who was not able to pronounce all the medical terminology. Also after listening to the book twice, it was not enough to pass the ACLS test. Very disappointing. It was just a good review for bls.

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
