Adult Cardiac Arrest Algorithm
The Cardiac Arrest Algorithm is the most critical algorithm of ACLS. When you have a patient without a pulse, you must recognize either ventricular fibrillation (VF) or pulseless ventricular tachycardia (pVT) as shockable rhythms.
Cardiac Arrest Circular Algorithm
This algorithm is a summary of the recommended steps when a patient is in cardiac arrest. Starting with CPR, you’ll work through the sequence by relying on rhythm checks, shocks if VF/pVT, and drug delivery.
Suspected Stroke Algorithm
The ACLS Suspected Stroke Algorithm emphasizes critical actions for out-of-hospital and in-hospital care and treatment. A stroke is an interruption in blood supply to a part of the brain which causes acute neurologic impairment.
Post-Cardiac Arrest Care Algorithm
This will take you through the implementation of a comprehensive treatment protocol for post-cardiac arrest care. This case is applicable to a patient who has had cardiac arrest and was resuscitated with the BLS, ACLS Primary, and ACLS Secondary Assessments.
Acute Coronary Syndromes Algorithm
The steps of this ACS Algorithm outline the assessment and management guidelines for patients experiencing symptoms suggestive of ischemia or infarction.
Bradycardia With A Pulse Algorithm
The Bradycardia Algorithm provides the information you need to assess and manage a patient with symptomatic bradycardia or a heart rate under 50 bpm. For some people (ie. runners), a slower heart rate may be normal and they will be asymptomatic.
Tachycardia With A Pulse Algorithm
With this algorithm, you'll need to determine if the patient is stable or unstable by evaluating and determining if the rhythm is regular or irregular and if the QRS is wide or narrow. This can help you determine the type of tachyarrhythmia.
