This course has been developed in order to standardise much of the in-hospital training undertaken already by Resuscitation Officers. Its aim is to train healthcare personnel in cardiopulmonary resuscitation, simple airway management and safe defibrillation (manual and/or AED), enabling them to manage patients in cardiac arrest until arrival of a cardiac arrest team and to participate as members of that team.

This course is run over one day and consists of lectures and practical stations. The manual is forwarded prior to the start of the course and the candidate is advised to study this thoroughly. Assessment on the course is continuous in nature.

Training sessions will be provided for the ALS algorithm and to outline practical work that you will take part in during this course. We will also teach you more about causes and prevention of cardiorespiratory arrest, the ABCDE approach, initial resuscitation and defibrillation, airway (with optional LMA), targeted training.
