Our PALS Program is designed to emphasize early recognition and management of potentially life threatening situations in the pediatric patient rather than merely “running code”. Through the use of stress free case based scenarios and interactive skills stations, participants will receive instruction in the recognition and management of respiratory failure and shock, basic life support and airway management, rhythm disturbances, vascular access, trauma, and managing cardiopulmonary arrest in the infant and child.
Seven contact hours will be awarded per day.
The 2015 PALS Provider Manual and online self assessment are mandatory for this course. PALS students must complete the pre-requisites provided on page 6 of the textbook. The online self assessment is located at www.heart.org/eccstudent . The code is located on the bottom of page ii in the 2015 PALS Provider Manual. A score of 70% or higher is required to attend the course. You must provide this certificate to your instructor before the start of class, or you will not be eligible to attend. This is an AHA mandate. There are no exceptions.
To recertify your BLS card after completing PALS, select the “BLS Completion Course” option from the dropdown box on the PALS registration page. This will consist of a video review and a written BLS test (Skills will be performed during the PALS course). If attending this completion course, please refer to page 42 of the PALS prep packet for an additional mandatory pre-test.
We strongly recommend the full course to participants who do not regularly treat kids
