Akron Children's Hospital is implementing HeartCode BLS Part 1 as part of Akron Children's BLS (CPR) for Healthcare Providers Program. HeartCode BLS is a web-based, self-paced instructional program that uses eSimulation technology to allow students to assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings.

HeartCode Part 1 is pre-course work and must be completed by the student before attending a skill challenge session. HeartCode Part 1 takes several hours to complete online. This course is for students taking the course for the first time or those needing a refresher course.

When students attend the hands-on skill session at Akron Children's Hospital, they will practice and then test  their skills with an AHA Instructor. During the testing session there will be no prompting or coaching.

Student manuals may be purchased on or borrowed through Akron Children's Hospital Medical Library 330-543-8250.
