Comment: The Advanced Radiology Life Support Course (ARLS) is designed to focus on the unique, life-threatening emergencies that occur within a radiology department. It is designed to teach prompt recognition and treatment of contrast reactions, management of the sedated patient, the proper management of an airway in an emergency situation, and basic concepts of advanced life support. This course will offer Basic Life Support (BLS) recertification and is fashioned after the Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) course that has been successful in teaching physicians, nurses, and allied health personnel patient management during cardiac arrest. Hands-on clinical stations as well as didactic instructions will be used. Advanced Radiology Life Support (ARLS) including Basic Life Support (BLS) recertification and sedation training will be offered in a single day format on Saturday, January 22, 2005. The ARLS, sedation, and BLS training materials included in this course were used to train physicians, nurses, and allied health personnel at the Mayo Clinic prior to a JCAHO site visit. This training program may help to prepare your department for a similar evaluation.
