ACLS GUIDELINES UPDATE
In Oct 2020, the latest updates of the Emergency Cardiovascular Care Guidelines were released. Our ACLS | BLS courses support current practice with the new ACLS and BLS guidelines, including the latest updates with Covid-19.
MANUALS and pre-reading can be obtained from your educators. If you wish to purchase a manual from SkillStat, you may do so when you register. The manual(s) will be express shipped to your home address. SkillStat also provides a series of links to free ACLS preparation resources through the Heart and Stroke Foundation (videos and a precourse quiz), ILCOR (International Liaison Council on Resuscitation) and SkillStat Learning.
