The American Hospital of Paris and SimAirlec hosted 13 doctors from seven different West African countries for an ACLS training course in Benin

ACLS training – For the second consecutive year, the American Hospital of Paris organized an ACLS training for international doctors. This session was organized in partnership with SimAirlec (Airlec).

This year, the American Hospital of Paris hosted 13 doctors from seven different West African countries, in Cotonou, Benin, from October 13-15, 2022, as part of an ACLS training program.

Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS Training) is an internationally renowned course whose recommendations come from the ILCOR (International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation). Dedicated to health care professionals, its main objective is to optimize the management of the first 10 minutes of a cardiorespiratory arrest in a hospital or extra-hospital environment.

The 2-day training is based on practical situations in order to exercise the essential skills of emergency cardiovascular resuscitation. It is completed by a half-day of manipulation on a connected mannequin allowing simulations in real conditions.

This session ended on Saturday October 15 with a conference given by Dr Dominique TAOKO, Managing Director of Isymeria (former Medical Director of Axa Partners France), on crisis management during exceptional health situations.

More than 50 doctors and medical directors attended this conference, organized with the support of the Ministry of Health of Benin.
