FAQ

 

 

Can any- one staff group perform another staff groups role in these protocols

 

YES. The protocol is intended to teach all members of the team the indications and basic skills of the various groups so that if one practitioner is not there another person can ‘jump in’ and perform the appropriate role safely and effectively e.g. equipping all practitioners with simple airway skills, etc. Having a good understanding of the process and the equipment makes the overall process more efficient. Furthermore, the straightforward nature of the roles allocated to each practitioner twinned with the reliance on visual aids allows for an increased confidence within the team

Can I become a REACT Trainer by taking the E-learning course only?

 

NO. The E-learning course is an adjunct to the education and is not in part or in whole a replacement for the live courses and proctorships that are required to become an accredited REACT Trainer. For more information on becoming a trainer please see the Certification tab on our website.

 

Do we have to have a simulation center to teach the course?

 

NO. The course has been designed so that it can be offered in as sophisticated a venue as a high-end simulation center or in as unsophisticated a venue as a small cardiology catheter laboratory. There are key components to the education and key pieces of equipment e.g simple resuscitation manikin, etc that are common to most education departments and cardiology catheter laboratories. If you have any queries contact us on the link below.


Do we have to become a center to teach CSU-ALS courses?

 

YES. As with other courses ‘practice makes perfect’. We believe that a select group of trainers regularly teaching will offer the best (and most uniform) educational content and thus optimize training.

What is the difference between REACT and ACLS

 

REACT is a specific novel set of protocols and guidelines devised to optimise the performance of a multi-disciplinary team 'working on' patients that deteriorate and arrest in the 'unique' environment of the 'Cath lab' (and its adjoining recovery area). ACLS is a set of generic guidelines aimed at a more generalist environment. Whilst there may be various similarities in some of the approaches the guided nature of REACT makes it completely different and aimed at this one specific clinical area.
