Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) is a set of procedures offered to individuals who suffer from life threatening emergencies such as cardiac arrest and stroke. The certification is generally given to healthcare professionals, as they are capable of providing proper medical care to the victims. The ACLS course involves life support skills using AED, in order to sustain the victims breathing, circulation and airway. The ACLS professionals will be taught to use these medical skills effectively and also to manage and lead a revival team.
