Module Content:

Timing, Quality, Coordination, and Administration:

AHA's ALS High-Performance Teams Module places a strong emphasis on the precise timing of interventions, the delivery of high-quality care, seamless coordination among team members, and effective administrative procedures. These aspects are crucial in optimizing patient outcomes during cardiac emergencies.

Team Roles and Dynamics:

Understanding the roles and dynamics within a medical team is essential. This module helps healthcare providers comprehend how to work cohesively as a team, allocate responsibilities, and communicate effectively to ensure the best possible care for patients in cardiac arrest.

The Role of a CPR Coach:

Recognizing the vital role of a CPR Coach is central to the AHA ALS module. CPR Coaches are instrumental in providing real-time feedback and guidance during resuscitation efforts, improving the quality of chest compressions and overall CPR performance.

Increasing Chest Compression Fraction (CCF):

AHA emphasizes techniques and strategies to increase Chest Compression Fraction (CCF) during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) procedures. A higher CCF has been linked to improved survival rates, making this an essential skill for healthcare providers.

Structured and Supported Debriefing:

Post-event debriefing is an essential component of the AHA ALS High-Performance Teams Module. It guides healthcare professionals in conducting structured debriefs after cardiac arrest cases, allowing teams to analyze their performance, identify areas for improvement, and refine their skills.
