The American Heart Association has approved an extension of the recognition of an AHA Provider Card beyond its renewal date, for up to 60 days, based on the evolving COVID-19 public health threat. To align with this AHA recommendation, Ballad Health has made the decision to suspend all AHA courses for the next 60 days. This includes BLS, ACLS, PALS, and NRP courses.


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 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.

Requirements
