The Pediatric Advanced Life Support PALS Course is for healthcare providers who respond to emergencies in infants and children. These include personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care and critical care units such as physicians, nurses, paramedics and others who need a PALS course completion card for job or other requirements.
This course is designed for the healthcare provider who conducts or participates in the resuscitation of a child or infant. It covers the assessment and emergency treatment in a pediatric setting. The use of the Broselow tape in calculating medication and managing the airway of a child/infant as well as CPR are all included in this course. This course meets all requirements for Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) Provider Certification as set forth by the American Heart Association.
The Pediatric Advanced Life Support text is required. All scenarios are designed for the work place of the individual participant. Our goal is that each participant will feel comfortable in handling life threatening emergencies in their own setting of the pediatric patient.
AHA has created the AHA Student Website at www.heart.org/eccstudent, which allows students and Instructors access to the online PALS Precourse Self-Assessment tool. To access the AHA Student Website, students and Instructors will need an access code, which is provided on page ii of the PALS Provider Manual and PALS Instructor Manual.
