A message from our Vice President, Strategic Research and Innovation, Russell Griffin
To address the significant challenges of providing resuscitation in the age of COVID-19, the American Heart Association has launched a “new online, adaptive learning course to coincide with the recently released Scientific Statement, Interim Guidance for Basic and Advanced Life Support in Adults, Children, and Neonates with Suspected or Confirmed COVID-19.”
This course is a complimentary offering with critical information, clinical guidance, and modified algorithms from the AHA for BLS, ACLS and PALS during the COVID-19 pandemic. We encourage all healthcare providers to complete this course to enable understanding of how to apply the AHA’s interim guidance for the treatment of cardiac arrest victims with suspected or confirmed COVID-19. It can be accessed through a range of electronic devices and platforms including PCs and mobile devices.
This course is another means to deliver on our commitment to support healthcare providers in helping people while protecting their own health and energy, and ensuring they remain competent in lifesaving efforts through effective resuscitation skills.
New CPR COVID-19 Reference
Another new resource, “5 Things Every Healthcare Provider Should Know About CPR for COVID-19 Patients” is available as a downloadable quick reference to reinforce the key points of the Scientific Statement for your provider staff.
In the days and months ahead, we stand ready to assist you to stay safe, healthy and prepared.
