We get them through Impelsys and we like it.  We have had ACLS, BLS, PALS, Textbook of Neonatal Resuscitation for about 2 years.  The books can be downloaded to a person's device or brought up via PDF.  They disappear after 4-5 days but the person can re-download it again if they need it.  Our training center allows people to bring the actual book or the online version of the book to take the test.  
We have cut back on the number of printed books we buy.  In the past we used to buy something like 10 copies of each, now we only have a few and we direct them to the online book.  Users are mixed, some prefer the book while some don't care. However, our usage for the online version is good so there are people who use it.  

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Subject: [EXT] Online ACLS/BLS/PALS Books

I am looking at online access options for ACLS/BLS/PALS books, and I am wondering if anyone has experience that he/she would like to share.  Impelsys is one option that I am especially interested in hearing about.  Also, are any Training Centers using an online format.
