What is HeartCode BLS, ACLS & PALS?

HeartCode is the official

American Heart Association Self-Directed Comprehensive eLearning Program

HeartCode allows students to take the BLS/HCP, ACLS & PALS courses on a computer, instead of attending traditional, classroom based course.

HeartCode BLS and ACLS uses Microsimulation Technology / Scenario-based Learningand VAM -Voice Assisted Manikin Technology Skills on a computerized manikin.

Quality of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation During In-Hospital Cardiac Arrest


The results from the study revealed very poor CPR quality in the in-hospital

setting.  That is too few and shallow chest compressions, and too many

ventilations per minute.



An Automated Voice Advisory Manikin System for Training in Basic Life Support

Without an Instructor.  A Novel Approach to CPR Training


Feedback can (almost immediately)improve the basic CPR skills performance

of paramedic students.  In addition, when students begin with feedback, they attain

a high level of performance and maintain that high level even when feedback is

taken away.

    Key questions to consider
    Key Questions to consider … HeartCode?

    • How many students do you train in BLS/HCP, ACLS and PALS annually?

    • Courses structure – Where? When? What equipment?

    • What are the biggest challenges/obstacles (over full classes, physicians not attending, lack of instructors…)

    • Do you charge for the course? How much do you charge employees vs. non-employees?

    • What does it cost you per student to teach the course? Don’t forget hourly rates in OT, replacing staff on the floor, books, facilities, etc.

    • Any opportunities to further market and provide these courses to non-employees your area? Become a profit center?
