About the Course

This advanced course highlights the importance of high-performance team dynamics and communication, systems of care, recognition and intervention of cardiopulmonary arrest, immediate post-cardiac arrest, acute dysrhythmia, stroke, and acute coronary syndromes (ACS).

This class will cover the following concepts:

  • Apply the BLS, Primary, and SecondaryAssessments sequence for a systematic evaluation of adult patients
  • Perform prompt, high-quality BLS, including prioritizing early chest compressions and integrating early automated external defibrillator (AED) use
  • Recognize and perform early management of respiratory arrest
  • Discuss early recognition and management of ACS and stroke, including appropriate disposition
  • Recognize and perform early management of bradyarrhythmias and tachyarrhythmias that may result in cardiac arrest or complicate resuscitation outcome
  • Recognize and perform early management of cardiac arrest until termination of resuscitation or transfer of care, including immediate post–cardiac arrest care
  • Model effective communication as a member or leader of a high-performance team
  • Evaluate resuscitative efforts during a cardiac arrest through continuous assessment of CPR quality, monitoring the patient’s physiologic response, and delivering real-time feedback to the team
  • Recognize the impact of team dynamics on overall team performance
  • Discuss how the use of a rapid response team or medical emergency team may improve patient outcomes
  • Define systems of care

COVID-19 ANNOUNCEMENT - KCI EMT TRAINING

We’re facing an unprecedented time. Our families, businesses and communities are all being affected by the coronavirus. Together, we will get through this and I wanted to update you on the measures that KCI EMT Training is taking to ensure continuity of EMS Training service while protecting our customers, partners and team members as COVID-19 runs its course.

KCI EMT Trainings operations and services will not be impacted by COVID-19. As a precautionary measure, all KCI EMT Training team instructors have transitioned to working from home through at least the end of April. Our teams are being asked to work with students through digital channels as much as possible. This means we’re adhering to cancellations and postponing in-person classroom trainings and all skills practices, until we can assure the health and safety of our students, staff and community. Our workforce is already very diverse geographically, well-equipped and digital. Expect no disruption in service.
