June 24, 2014 - Basketball player saved by the coach’s swift efforts at Jackson City

The coach found that one of his players was feeling uneasy; he had a pulse but only faint. Initially, his chest was rising and falling very slowly but suddenly it did not come back again. So, the coach started CPR. As he was doing the chest compressions he felt that his shoulder was locking up and hence was supported by the staff members and other coaches. They continued CPR for 10-15 minutes until the first responders took over.

Missouri FAQs

Can I purchase just the Missouri ACLS exam and not the study guide?

Unfortunately you cannot purchase the exam and training material separately. However, if you do not require the MO ACLS training material you are not required to use it. You'll be able to start the MO ACLS exam as soon as your order is processed.

Am I required to study prior to taking the Missouri PALS recertification exam?

No, if you don't feel the need to review the course material you can go directly to the exam. You can begin the exam immediately after purchase. Exam results are provided instantly and you'll receive an immediate downloadable MO PALS card once you pass the exam.

Will I need to retake the Missouri BLS if new material is updated after I pass the exam?

No, you won't need to retake the MO BLS if we update the content. Once you earn a certification you are compliant for two years. However, the next time you renew your certification you should expect to test on new material. At Pacific Medical Training, we update our courses as soon new guidelines are released by the American Heart Association.

This day is designed to increase the awareness of the various diseases and health issues that the citizens who live in the more underdeveloped parts of Missouri are facing. The state of Missouri is trying to entice more health professionals to work in the rural parts of the state so that people can get the care that they need.

The state of Missouri also launched a program in mid-2011 in order to help prevent falls in senior citizens. When a senior citizen falls, it can do severe damage or even cause death.

Some of the recommendations include having bright lights in the home, having consistent eye exams, and exercising regularly.
