ALS (Advanced Life Support)

The European Resuscitation Council (ERC) has developed its Advanced Life Support (ALS) provider course, based on ERC guidelines. it is a standardized European course teaching evidence-based resuscitation guidelines and skills to helthcare professionals. The ALS course provides a standardized approach to cardiopilmonary resuscitation in adults. The ALS course aims to train candidates to recognize patients danger of deterioration, identify the cause of cardiac arrest and manage both the cardiac arrest and the `peri-arrest´problems encoutered immeadiately after initial resuscitation.

Candidaets' knowledge is assessed by means of a multiple-choice questionnaire. Practical skills in airway management and the initiaö approach to a collapsed patient (including basic life support and defibrillation where appropriate) are assessed countinuously. There is also an assessment of a simulated cardiac arrest (CASTest). Candidates reaching the required standard receive an ALS provider certificate.


ILS (Immediate Life Support)

The immediate Life Support course is a multidisciplinary 1-day course which proveides the essential knowledge and skills that are important in the initial phase of treating a critically ill patient who needs resuscitation. Therefore, it is ideally suited for the training of healthcare providers at all stages and levels.
