Pediatric Advance Life Support (PALS)

This American Heart Association’s PALS Course is an Instructor-led, classroom-based course that enhances healthcare providers’ skills in the treatment of pediatric arrest and prearrest patients. The goal of the PALS Course is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children, resulting in improved outcomes. The course uses a series of simulated pediatric emergencies to teach and reinforce the important concepts of a systematic approach to pediatric assessment, basic life support, PALS treatment algorithms, effective resuscitation and team dynamics.

Audience: The PALS Course is for healthcare providers who respond to emergencies in infants and children. These include personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care and critical care units, such as physicians, nurses, paramedics and others who need a PALS course completion card for job or other requirements.

Prerequisites: Before taking PALS, participants should be competent in infant and child BLS (CPR) skills. They should also be able to recognize various heart rhythms, be familiar with different types of airway management tools (BVM. OPA, Suction) and their use and have knowledge of the drugs (Atropine, Eip, Lidocaine, Adenosine...) commonly used to treat cardiovascular irregularities. 

To help students adequately prepare for the PALS Course, the AHA highly recommends that each student complete the online PALS Precourse Self-Assessment, available through the AHA Student Website (www.heart.org/eccstudent). To access the AHA Student Website, students will need an access code, which is included in each PALS Provider Manual or in your enrollment confirmation email.
