Description

NALS is and advanced emergency course specific for Naturopath Doctors (NDs). This newly developed course replaces both the need for certification in the prior requirement of Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) or the former Naturopathic Cardiovascular Life Support (NCLS).

ND's will need recertification in this course every 2 years. 

  • BLS can be included in the course if needed, provided that each physician has completed the online portion of BLS prior to the course. The Online portion of the BLS course can be found on the Heart and Stroke website: https://cpr.heartandstroke.ca/s/bls.

The NALS course will include reviews and learning in the following:

  •  systems of care

  • recognition and intervention of cardiopulmonary arrest, acute dysrhythmia, stroke, and acute coronary syndromes, hypoglycaemia, opined overdose, IV injection complications, sepsis, pulmonary edema etc, seizures, anxiety disorders, pneumothorax, and shock.
