“CODE BLUE” OR “CODE WHITE” MOCK TESTING & EVALUATION

These are classroom-based or out-of-site “code blue” or “code white” mock testing and evaluation for your medical and clinical team whether it is in the inpatient setting or outpatient setting. These are for novice and/or experienced healthcare providers with a current and unexpired American Heart Association (AHA) Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS), and/or American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) course certificate of completion and card who, after successful completion of the testing and evaluation, should be able to do the following with much more confidence:

  • Apply the BLS, Primary, and Secondary Assessments sequence for a systematic evaluation of adult and pediatric patients
  • Perform prompt, high-quality BLS, including prioritizing early chest compressions and integrating early automated external defibrillator (AED) use
  • Recognize and perform early management of respiratory arrest
  • Discuss early recognition and management of ACS, stroke, shock cases (hypovolemic, septic, cardiogenic, neurogenic, obstructive, and anaphylactic), compensated and decompensated shock, upper and lower respiratory disease, interstitial lung disease, and respiratory distress/arrest/failure including appropriate disposition
  • Recognize and perform early management of bradyarrhythmias and tachyarrhythmias that may result in cardiac arrest or complicate resuscitation outcome
  • Recognize and perform early management of cardiac arrest until termination of resuscitation or transfer of care, including immediate post–cardiac arrest care
  • Model effective communication as a member or leader of a high-performance team
  • Evaluate resuscitative efforts during a cardiac arrest through continuous assessment of CPR quality, monitoring the patient’s physiologic response, and delivering real-time feedback to the team
  • Recognize the impact of team dynamics on overall team performance
  • Discuss how the use of a rapid response team or medical emergency team may improve patient outcomes
  • Define systems of care

In addition to these important topics in advanced life support, cognitive and psychomotor skills will be learned through small-group teaching, case scenario practice on a manikin as Team Leader and team members (i.e., hands-on learning), and use of large- or small group short video presentations with Instructor-student interaction (i.e., engage students in discussion). After the testing and evaluation is completed by each student, the following will be demonstrated proficiently:

  • Systematic approach
  • High-quality BLS
  • Airway management
  • Rhythm recognition
  • Defibrillation
  • Intravenous (IV)/intraosseous (IO) access (information only)
  • Use of medications
  • Cardioversion
  • Transcutaneous pacing
  • Team dynamics

Students will practice the application of these and other skills in simulated cases and will practice both Team Leader and team member roles.

Please call us to sign up for your classroom-based or out-of-site “code blue” or “code white” mock testing and evaluation for your medical and clinical team!

To enter the course, students must complete a precourse self-assessment. Students will then be presented with a team dynamics lesson and 10 In-hospital patient cases, including a BLS case and 2 Megacode cases.

Upon successful completion of all the patient cases, students must pass the written exam with a score of 84%. Students then are able to attend the hands-on session required for full course completion.

After successfully completing the HeartCode ACLS Course, including the online portion, followed by the hands-on skills session, students should be able to understand the following:

  • Key changes in advanced cardiovascular life support, reflecting the American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care
  • Ten adult patient cases with up to four healthcare providers, presented through eSimulation technology:
    • One BLS case
    • Seven cases representing cardiovascular, respiratory and stroke emergencies
    • Two Megacodes
  • Define systems of care
  • Discuss how the use of a rapid response team or medical emergency team may improve patient outcomes
  • Discuss early recognition and management of ACS and stroke, including appropriate disposition
    • Management of acute coronary syndromes (ACS) and stroke

    • Related pharmacology
  • Recognize and perform early management of cardiac arrest until termination of resuscitation or transfer of care, including immediate post–cardiac arrest care
  • Effective communication as a member and leader of a resuscitation team
    • Model effective communication as a member or leader of a high-performance team
    • Evaluate resuscitative efforts during a cardiac arrest through continuous assessment of CPR quality, monitoring the patient’s physiologic response, and delivering real-time feedback to the team
    • Recognize the impact of team dynamics on overall team performance
