A Major Milestone in Improving Resuscitation Quality

Celebrating 1 million life support certifications achieved in healthcare with the American Red Cross Resuscitation Suite™

Group of people trying to resuscitate patient.

More than 200,000 adult cardiac arrests take place in U.S. hospitals every year—and almost 3 in 4 are fatal. The nationally recognized panel of medical, scientific, and academic experts behind the American Red Cross Resuscitation Suite are working to improve those outcomes through this adaptive, evidence-based program.

At HealthStream, we’re committed to driving the next decade of quality improvement in resuscitation outcomes by helping healthcare organizations across the country train to a higher standard with the Red Cross Resuscitation Suite.

Together with the Red Cross, we have supported more than 5,000 healthcare facilities achieve compliance in Basic Life Support (BLS), Advanced Life Support (ALS), and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS).

Train to a Higher Standard for BLS, ALS, and PALS Certification

To improve outcomes, accuracy, and consistency in response we must change the way we think about resuscitation training. That’s why we’re proud to collaborate with the Red Cross, the premier provider of resuscitation and first aid training.

The Red Cross Resuscitation Suite goes beyond a cardiac focus and incorporates a broad spectrum of evidence-based recommendations from organizations representing pediatricians, emergency and critical care physicians, surgeons, and obstetricians.

  • Consistent with well-established guidelines for U.S. resuscitation programs
  • Founded on ILCOR’s scientific guidelines, the world’s most authoritative source for resuscitation knowledge
  • Focused on optimizing team response, ensuring high-quality CPR performance, and improving real-world critical thinking and response time

Objective Feedback Promotes Accuracy and Precision

Consider our innovative manikins the instructor that never sleeps. We understand it isn’t always easy to take your staff off the floor to verify their CPR skills. These technologically advanced manikins, paired with the Skills application, allow your staff to self-identify with their hStream ID so they can practice and verify their skills on their schedule.

The manikins work with the Resuscitation Skills app to give learners objective and numeric data to improve the quality of CPR performance.

  • Unbiased, sensor-based digital measurements allow for more accurate feedback than an instructor’s visual assessment alone
  • Comprehensive, real-time CPR performance data on compression depth, rate, recoil, and hand position
  • Learner scorecard with an overall score and performance scores across eight key competencies

The most flexible resuscitation program in healthcare

We understand that a “one-size-fits-all” approach to resuscitation training doesn’t help your organization improve outcomes. That’s why we allow you to select the delivery for this program that’s right for your organization:
