How is SimCode ACLS™ better than traditional classroom-based methods?

SimCode ACLS™ is available to you 24 hours a day while your subscription is active, and can be run anywhere you have an internet connection and a browser that supports Adobe Flash Player 9.0 or better. That means you can be at work, at home, traveling, and still have access to practicing your ACLS knowledge whenever you have time. Traditional ACLS training takes place once every two years, allowing you plenty of time to forget those vital skills and requires you to rearrange your schedule to make it to that class.

SimCode ACLS™ also keeps track of your performance, giving you detailed feedback as well as cumulative statistics on all the cases you've run. You gain mastery with repetition for whichever cases you want or need to work on.

How does SimCode ACLS™ build leadership skills and confidence?

Every time you run SimCode ACLS™, you are placed in the driver's seat as the team leader. Your job is to assess the situation and direct your assistants to provide the appropriate interventions. As the team leader, you are in charge of every piece of the code, including making sure the patient is appropriately monitored and that your assistants are performing orders correctly. SimCode ACLS™ reflects real-world situations by simulating the effect of time for interventions to be performed and the time for them to take effect. You will learn to delegate responsibilities and manage time well in order to resuscitate patients effectively. With continued use of SimCode ACLS™, your familiarity and skill with managing code situations will improve, boosting your confidence.

How is SimCode ACLS™ good for patient safety?

Every minute of uncertainty in reality can translate to a lost life. The simulated patients in SimCode ACLS™ are there for you to safely experiment and learn on, without placing anybody's life in jeopardy. By improving your understanding of ACLS protocols and situation management performance, you'll be able to deliver interventions quickly and accurately. Ultimately, you are giving your patients a better chance.
