We have updated our ACLS protocols here at the Grady Memorial Hospital. That means that all cardiac arrest and codes will be governed by the American Heart Association guidelines. Should you want to attend our course feel free to come on by and get some ACLS protocol training. We are dedicated to seeing our junior and our senior medical staff adequately trained.
The ACLS algorithms are designed to be more user friendly and geared toward success. The AHA has placed a great deal of emphasis on CPR and that your CPR be effective. Push hard and push fast will help increase Cerebral Perfusion and as a result the patient will have a better chance of survival. Be cognitive of the new ACLS standards and how they will effect the way you run your cardiac arrest codes.
