The course Advanced Life Support enables students to adequately assess and treat a patient in resuscitation setting according to protocolled guidelines by making use of a systematic clinical approach and medical technology. The following learning objectives are pursued:
  1. The student can describe the underlying principles of therapies that are commonly used in a resuscitation setting
  2. The student can describe the possibilities and limitations of diagnostic technologies that are commonly used in a resuscitation setting
  3. The student is able to relate information derived from the anamnesis, physical examination, arterial blood gas values, venous laboratory values, echography, X-thorax and the patient monitor to an individual patient case.
  4. The student can perform resuscitation in a team according to the protocol of shockable and non-shockable rhythms in a simulated resuscitation setting.
  5. The student can adequately perform chest compressions, non-invasive ventilation techniques, medication administration, and electrical therapies that are part of the resuscitation protocol in a simulated resuscitation setting.
  6. The student can adequately communicate and collaborate in a team in a simulated resuscitation setting.
  7. The student can handover patients in a structured way according to the SBAR methodology.
  8. The student can analyze a patient in a structured way according to the ABCDE methodology.
  9. The student can propose an adequate diagnostic and therapeutic strategy based on the available clinical and contextual information of a patient case.
In the course Advanced Life Support, we will follow the guidelines provided by the European Resuscitation Council. Yet, we do not intend to train resuscitation teams or to provide any certifications, but to create insight in medical technologies and procedures that are relevant in the management of patients with a circulatory arrest.

During the course, students will practice and become acquainted with medical technologies and skills, in which the underlying therapeutic and diagnostic principles are underlined. Next, specific attention is given to the clinical approach of patient assessment and the interpretation of critical body functions. The major part of the course consists of sessions in which knowledge and skills have to be integrated and applied on a simulated patient case in a resuscitation setting
