Acute Stroke Life Support Course

The Acute Stroke Life Support (ASLS) Course is a hands-on course on acute stroke management targeted to the educational needs of Emergency Medical Technicians, paramedics, and emergency department physicians and nurses.   ASLS course participants will receive continuing education credit and learn valuable clinical assessment skills to accurately recognize and provide emergency management of common stroke syndromes. Early and accurate identification of stroke and quicker treatment will reduce the disability associated with stroke. The course uses computer simulations for life-like training. The participants are also taught to use the MEND examination (Miami Emergency Neurologic Deficit) which takes less than 3 minutes to perform. Pre-hospital personnel receiving training will have the tools to convey stroke assessments to receiving emergency department personnel and provide continuity of care for the stroke patient. The ASLS course not only provides the assessment tools for stroke detection, but also provides insight into to the treatment and care of the stroke patients beyond the emergency room.
