Description

Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS), is a course developed by the American Heart Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) for the training of health care providers. It emphasizes early recognition of pre-arrest states and the prevention of cardiopulmonary arrest in children. It also teaches relevant techniques that enable effective intervention in pediatric resuscitation.

Prior to the course, the PALS Provider student is responsible for independent study of the American Heart Association PALS Provider manual. The majority of the teaching during the course is done in small, informal group lectures, discussions, and practical hands-on stations. This format allows maximal student/instructor interaction and was designed to enhance learning and decrease participant stress.

Upon successful completion, participants will be granted a PALS provider card through the American Heart Association. Provider status is valid for two years, and a renewal course is required to remain a PALS provider.

OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of the PALS Course, the participant will be able to:

• Recognize the infant or child at risk for cardiopulmonary arrest.

• Identify strategies for preventing cardiopulmonary arrest in infants and children.

• Demonstrate the cognitive and psychomotor skills necessary for resuscitating the infant or child in respiratory failure, shock, or cardiopulmonary arrest.

PREREQUISITE

Participants should have basic EKG interpretation and Pharmacology knowledge. These are not taught in class. The Provider Manual must be read prior to attending the course and the self-assessment test taken. Print your certificate and bring it with you to the course. Use the assessment to identify areas in which you need to increase your knowledge. In addition all participants must demonstrate CPR/BLS proficiency to complete the class.
