Alternative to ACLS and/or PALS/PEPP

Recommended Posts

My agency is seeking to improve the rescitation performance in the field, and we are generally dissasitified with the standard merit badge courses.

How many of you provider either:

1- An in house alternative to ACLS or PALS/PEPP or; facilitate higher performance in resuscitation


2- An in house supplement to ACLS or PALS/PEPP to facilitate higher performance in resuscitation

If so, could you relate any specifics (on list or off) as far as course length and content? Also , if you are a NREMT state, what do you do about NREMT recertification.

For the record, we are NOT looking at ACLS-EP. While this concept showed promise, it is logistically prohibitive to put the course on here or to train a cadre of in house instructors to the ACLS-EP level. its not from lack of trying, but rather logistical hurdles put up by the AHA.

AIME: Airway Intervention and Management in Emergencies


BCAS runs this program as one of its cornerstone clinical education pieces. It's an excellent course for anyone expected to make evidence based/staged airway management decisions.
