Description

Pediatric Advanced Life Support “PALS” is an advanced, instructor-led classroom course that prepares participants to improve outcomes for pediatric patients by preparing healthcare providers to effectively recognize and intervene in patients with respiratory emergencies, shock, and cardiopulmonary arrest by using high-performance team dynamics and high-quality individual skills.

Participants use the systematic approach, including initial, primary, and secondary assessments, to identify pediatric medical emergencies and provide intervention strategies to resolve pediatric emergencies. Participants are strongly encouraged to have a working knowledge of pediatric settings, including treating respiratory, shock, and cardiovascular manifestations. The skills are taught in large and small group sessions with testing stations with case-based scenarios completed by each participant.

A PALS Provider Manual is required to take this course. The PALS initial is 16 hour course. It is completed in a hybrid format by utilizing the online PALS Heartcode and then completing a required knowledge comprehension, hands-on skills check at the Training Center. PALS CLASSES ARE NOT REFUNDABLE.

After you register for the PALS initial course, purchase the PALS Heartcode video from ShopCPR.com and complete it before attending the in-person skills check. A printed copy of you PALS Heartcode course completion certificate is required to participate in the PALS Initial skills.
