Current American ACLS Guidelines

  1. greetings all,

    i am an australian nurse moving in a couple of weeks to the united arab emirates.

    the hospital in which i am to work employs current american guidelines for advanced cardiac life support.

    can anyone suggest where i am able to view online records of current guidelines for both adults, paediatrics and neonates?

    in particular i am interested in obtaining flow charts / algorithms which relate to the management of different arrhythmia including defibrillation and drug doses.

    i suspect these guidelines are not too dissimilar to our own however, would like to confirm this before i arrive overseas.

    [font=arial (w1)]thanks in advance.

    the american heart association website is www.americanheart.org. you can find information there if you click the cpr & ecc link.

    materials such as handbooks, pocket cards, & manuals can be purchased from several vendors. i personally use www.laerdal.com.

    neonatal guidelines and materials can be found at http://www.aap.org/nrp/

    good luck!
