Cardiac Arrest!........................... $119


Take a look at the NEW Cardiac Arrest! program!

Based on the 2010 American Heart Association® ACLS Guidelines, Cardiac Arrest! is the ultimate ACLS computer simulator. Exciting live-action video teaches actions for tough clinical problems like hypocalcemia, hyperkalemia, hypothermia, Kawasaki disease, and more. Cardiac Arrest! sharpens Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) skills in an exciting and realistic ER simulation.

Cardiac Arrest! casts you in the role of emergency physician. The patient's history is presented, and your resuscitation efforts begin. You read the ECG on the computer screen, interpret the vital signs and laboratory data. Give treatment orders using a simple point and click interface, or type in plain English. Cardiac Arrest! provides drug information, an on-line text book and algorithm flowcharts for the optimal learning environment.

Featuring 45 patients, t
here are 15 easier patients, 15 complex patients, and 15 pediatric patients(PALS). The program keeps track of the patients you have completed. Each patient simulation is followed by a short quiz and you may redo a case if the outcome was unsatisfactory. When redoing a case, the variables of the patient will change so that you never have the same scenario twice.

You can make Cardiac Arrest! meet YOUR OWN learning needs. For example, if you're trying to learn drug treatment strategies, you can have your treatment team automatically perform CPR and ventilations when needed, so you can concentrate on the treatment algorithms.

When you believe the patient is stabilized enough for ICU admission, click the "Admit" button. The patient's private physician will drop by to tell you about the final outcome. You're expected to stabilize shock and treat major electrolyte or fluid deficits before the ICU admission

Excerpt from the manual:

"This is not a program for kiddies. The patients are real patients; the drugs you use are real drugs. Proper use of drugs and procedures will save a life — inappropriate use of a drug of therapy may kill the patient. With the help of the manual and some practice a person who knows little about medicine can soon begin to “save lives” on the computer. The more difficult patients will present a challenge even to the emergency specialist."

Cardiac Arrest! can be used alone or as part of the ACLS Teaching Series. Code Team! is the second half of the ACLS Teaching Series, and includes modules EKG Teaching, CardioQuiz, and ACLS Protocols. It’s strongly recommended for initial learning of ACLS concepts, cardiac rhythms, and arrhythmia treatment algorithms.

Both programs can be purchased together in one package, called the ACLS Teaching Series.

Includes software installation DVD and Manual. Due to the large file size, this program is not available for download. Instead, a software package will be mailed to you via UPS or USPS, your choice during the checkout process.
