Advanced Life Support (ALS) is a set of life-saving protocols and skills that reach out past Basic Life Support (BLS). It is utilized to give critical treatment to cardiovascular emergencies like heart failure, stroke, myocardial localized necrosis, and other different conditions.
ALS is one of the vital steps in the American Heart Association’s Chain of Survival which is a sequence of procedures that can expand survival rates of abrupt heart failure and different emergencies. The five crucial activities include:
- Immediate recognition of cardiac arrest and activation of the emergency response system
- Early high-quality CPR with an emphasis on chest compressions
- Rapid defibrillation
- Effective advanced life support
- Integrated post-cardiac arrest care
