The Only 2 Cardiac Arrest Arrhythmias We Should Shock:

During cardiac arrest, we must analyze the rhythm immediately and shock if the rhythm is ventricular fibrillation or ventricular tachycardia.

Defibrillate with 120-200 joules with biphasic units, 200-360 with monophasic units.

*do not defibrillate for ventricular tachycardia when the patient has a palpable pulse

    Amazing Instructor Nava, David for ACLS.He was entertaining and kept the class laughing the whole time. I learned alot from this class. He is a "Paramedic" so he comes across what he is teaching you on daily basis almost. He made it really simple to understand. - 7/24/2019

    Very friendly staff, clean classrooms and working equipment. Originally I was only looking for PALS and ACLS classes but ended up adding a basic ECG class cause their deal packages made it worth it. - 8/03/2018
