ACLS (advanced cardiac life support) training

“A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it” George A. Moore.

As customary, every two years I attend ACLS (advanced cardiac life support) training in Birmingham, Alabama. The training keeps me updated on the latest American Heart Association (AHA) recommendations for BLS (basic life support), Advanced cardiac care, and Stroke intervention prevention and treatment. The AHA has loosened up the breathing aspect of CPR and put the emphasis on the chest compressions (100-120 per minute). The thought process is that the average person might avoid doing CPR if it will involve performing mouth to mouth breathing. One of the take home reminders is that it is relatively easy to keep the cadence for the chest compressions by doing them to the beat of the Bee Gee’s song“ Staying alive”.

Should you have questions about ACLS or BLS training, please call the office to speak to Dr. Dagostino.
