I frequently get the question: “Is your site up to date with the 2018 ACLS Guidelines” because most references on this website state that the site is up to date with the 2015-2020 ACLS Guidelines.
Every 5 years the American Heart Association has a meeting where they hammer out new CPR and ACLS guidelines based upon the data collected from the previous 5 years.
The most recent guidelines were released in 2015. Therefore the 2017 ACLS guidelines are actually the 2015 ACLS guidelines.
2017 ACLS Guidelines=2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 ACLS Guidelines
So now you understand that until late 2020, ACLS providers will be responsible to learn and master the 2018 ACLS protocols.
