Advanced: Pediatric Life Support (PALS) Full or Renewal

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. This course will enhance skills in the treatment of arrest and peri-arrest patients through active participation in a series of simulated pediatric patient cases.

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

The Pre Course Assessment MUST be completed via the web address provided in the textbook using the passcode provided. You must print and bring the evaluation with you and you must have the book with you. 

***NOTE*** If you do not have both the pre course assessment and the current PALS manual you WILL NOT be admitted to class and will be asked to reschedule.

The exam consists of skills checkoff scenarios and BLS performance. A multiple choice, written exam will be given which requires score of at least 84%.

Contact Hours and CME Credit are offered.
