*The ECG and Pharmacology course is an excellent introduction to the ACLS and PALS curriculum. The ACLS and PALS course does not teach ECG and Pharmacology, students are required to know ECG and Pharmacology prior to attending these courses. If you have not taken an ACLS or PALS course for several years and are out of practice or have not been a practicing medical professional for a long while, this is a perfect course to bring you back up to speed on the ECG rhythm recognition, cardiac physiology, and pharmacology dosage and administration. Even if you are practicing medical professional or fresh out of nursing school this course will boost your knowledge and confidence in dealing with cardiac emergencies.
*We also provide onsite American Heart Association ECG and Pharmacology courses.
