Please purchase the course before starting the lesson.

A crucial part of becoming a trained ACLS provider is understanding Systems of Care, as described by AHA guidelines. Systems of Care are basically how you can achieve ideal results for any patient through proper professional organization. Life-saving interventions can be organized in a specific way that will allow for the most efficient and effective delivery. Patients who are under the care of communities, EMS staff, and hospitals that adhere to thorough Systems of Care generally experience better results.
