Post-Cardiac Arrest Care
The new fifth link in the chain of survival
2010 AHA guidelines added a fifth link in the chain of survival. That link is integrated post-cardiac arrest care.
During ACLS certification, you will be tested on Post-Cardiac Arrest Care in both the ACLS written exam and during the megacode. Areas of knowledge will include post arrest medications, ventilation and oxygenation, induced hypothermia, fluid resuscitation and treatment of reversible causes.
This 25 question test will help you assess your knowledge of the Post-Cardiac Arrest Phase. Use the link below to access the test.
