Looking for the perfect resource to help you memorize the H's and T's of ACLS? From basic definitions to causes and treatments, this informative video covers everything you need to know.

If you're taking your Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) exam anytime soon, you're likely aware that you'll need to be familiar with the H's and T's of ACLS. Essentially, the H's and T's are a mnemonic device used to help you memorize the most common and potentially reversible causes of cardiac arrest.

Because cardiac arrest is one of the most common causes of death in America, it’s important that you understand what causes it and how it can be treated. Thus, the H’s and T’s were developed in order to help you understand this important part of your ACLS training.
