Megacode Series


ACLS Megacode Series

This new series of videos will take you one step further in your ACLS training. If you have not completed the ACLS Megacode Simulator section of this site, you may want to review content there before advancing into the Megacode Video Series.

In these megacode videos, you will be taken through a scenario and challenged with questions about interventions as the scenario progresses. These videos will build your rhythm identification skills and will also improve your reaction time with interventions.

  1. Hello Jeff, I passed the ACLS Cert. this week. Using this site really helped me to understand the reasoning behind the algorithms. Thanks a million.

  2. I passed ACLS this week! This is the second time I have used this site for studying. I couldn’t pass without it:) The information is explain very well and appreciated the 2014 updates. The price is extremely reasonable. I will be back in two years. Thanks again.

  3. I took my ACLS exam yesterday and I was very pleased with the result— flying colours!Thank God for this website. You made learning ACLS simple and fun ! A million thanks. I already shared this website to my friends. See you in two years. God Bless!

  4. I have never been well versed in ACLS, barely passed 2 years ago. Had to renew my ACLS license yesterday so I subscribed to this site. For the first time ever I feel confident when a pt codes. I passed the ACLS class easily- especially the mega code testing . I rocked it thanks to this site! Well worth the cost! I’m determined to keep this invaluable knowledge fresh by studying this site regularly.
    With gratitude,

    • Thank you contacting the site. I am so glad that the site has helped you master knowledge needed for ACLS. Great Job and thanks again for letting me know about your experience.

      Kind regards,

  5. 2 years ago, my then 3yr old grandson LOVED defibrillating pts in VF. He quickly learned to recognize the rhythms that “aren’t good” and readily mentioned “that’s a bad one” when he saw the monitors at the hospital.
    I love this site, great job!
    Thanks Jeff

  6. Hi Jeff,
    Thank you for a great review. The megacodes helped with the skills portion of the ACLS. Thank you.

  7. Thank you Jeff for this great site. Used it last time and back again for resert. Love the music and videos! How about a site for PALS?

  8. These videos are very helpful, but it seems like every scenario goes to V-Fib and then is pretty much the same from there. It would be helpful to have more variety to cover more algorithms.

    • I do try and include VT or VF in most of the megacodes since this will be the primary focus of ACLS certification and these two rhythms are the two most common lethal rhythms seen in the real world. However, I do agree that more variety would be good and I definitely plan on adding scenarios with more variety in the future.

      Thank you for the feedback.

      Kind regards,

  9. The mega code videos are very helpful to get me thinking. They are the most helpful part of this website, for me. Thanks for a wonderful, concise and informative site. -Chris

  10. Always get confused sync shock vs. unsync shock…..when/what rhythm?

  11. hopefully I wil pass the check off tomorrow i already passed the on line test I think I feel more ready than I ever have been in the past. I have taken ACLS ever since 1980 every two years. I feel more prepared than ever thanks to the mega code check offs it has helped considerably. I am about to retire maybe at least another couple years. thanks again

  12. I passed the renewal with flying colors thanks to your site! Don’t tell, but I didn’t even buy the book. I went through all the questions and all the megacodes and it was a breeze. Thanks!!

  13. Thanks Jeff.

    I took my ACLS exam today and passed with flying colours, thanks for your great website. I will use it again when I recertify.

  14. Hi Jeff. In case v tach,Pt unresponsive, my question is : Do you check pulse before to shock or to beginn CPR. I’m sorry, it’s confused!

    • After you check the rhythm and there is no pulse, you should shock.  After the shock give 5 cycles of cpr,  then check rhythm. Only check a pulse if you see an organized rhythm. –Jeff
