The Pediatric Advanced Life Support Provider Course is designed for health care providers who either direct or participate in the resuscitation of pediatric patients, whether in the hospital or pre-hospital setting.

Concepts covered include:

  • Identification and treatment of medical conditions that place a pediatric patient at risk for respiratory/cardiac arrest
  • Basic Life Support for Children and Infants
  • Recognition and Management of Respiratory Emergencies
  • Intra-Osseous Access
  • Cardiac Rhythm Disturbances
  • Initial Impression, Primary, Secondary and Diagnostic Tests Assessments using the “Evaluate, Identify, Intervene” model
  • PALS Algorithms
  • Effective resuscitation team dynamics

Course details

Course is 12 to 16 hours and requires the Pediatric Advanced Life Support Provider Manual. The Handbook of Emergency Cardiovascular Care is also recommended.
