Ensure the space can be organized to simulate different healthcare settings (e.g., emergency room, ICU).
• Airway Management Station: Include airway devices such as intubation equipment, supraglottic airways, and video laryngoscopes for advanced airway management practice.
• IV and Medication Administration Station: Equip with IV training arms and a range of simulated medications for drug administration practice.
• Defibrillation Station:Provide defibrillator trainers to practice proper defibrillation techniques and coordination with CPR.
• Team Communication Station: Set up audio systems for simulating communication during resuscitation scenarios.
Integrate simulation software to create realistic patient scenarios, including ECG rhythms and vital sign changes.
Use audio systems for clear communication between instructors and participants during simulations.
Provide training for both individual skills and team dynamics during resuscitation scenarios.
Instructors should be proficient in leading simulations and providing constructive feedback.
Stay current with the latest ACLS guidelines and integrate any updates into training materials.
Setting up an ACLS Skill Lab requires careful planning, investment, and collaboration with experienced instructors. By creating a realistic learning environment, you contribute to the development of healthcare professionals’ skills in managing critical cardiac emergencies and ultimately improving patient outcomes.
