Ascension Wisconsin Libraries No Longer Circulate BLS / ACLS / PALS Books

Updated 6/2/2021
Q: Where can I find a BLS/ ACLS book?
As of June 2019, The Ascension Wisconsin Libraries no longer circulate BLS / ACLS / or PALS books for the following reasons:

  • The new online program does not follow what's in the old (c2016) print books.  Thus, they contain out-dated information and may lead people astray.
  • The most up-to-date versions of the text are contained within the online program.
  • The eBook version is available to associates before, during and after they complete the online course.
  • Life Support / Librarians are not on site to keep track of these books.  Many print books are never returned, or disappear without ever being checked out.
  • The print books are no longer being purchased by Life Support.
  • They are costly to replace.
  • If you really want the print book, we recommend that you purchase your won copy through Amazon or other book supplier.  You'll get a better price that Ascension did.  

You can purchase your own print copies of the latest editions from The American Heart Association directly:

Buy the current BLS Student Manual (c2020) from The American Heart Association.    ISBN 9781616697686

Buy the current ACLS Student Manual (c2020) from The American Heart Association.    ISBN  9781616697723
