The AHA’s ECG & Pharmacology Course has been updated to reflect the 2015 AHA Guidelines for CPR and ECC. This classroom-based, Facilitator-led course is designed to improve electrocardiogram (ECG) recognition skills and pharmacology knowledge for treating cardiovascular emergencies. The Adult ECG & Pharmacology Course addresses a key knowledge gap in electrocardiogram (ECG) and pharmacology, and focuses on specific ECG recognition skills and drug treatment knowledge. The course is a pre-course option for ACLS or PALS students and other healthcare providers, or is also intended for ACLS or PALS students who complete the ACLS or PALS pre-course self-assessment and find they need to improve their knowledge.
