Pediatric Advanced Life Support

This course is for Healthcare Providers who either direct or participate in the management of cardiopulmonary arrest or other cardiovascular emergencies in the pediatric or infant population. This includes personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care and critical care units such as physicians, nurses, and paramedics, as well as others who need Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) for work, school, or other requirements.

Pediatric Advanced Life Support emphasizes the importance of Basic Life Support to patient survival, the integration of effective Basic Life Support with advanced cardiovascular life support interventions, and the importance of effective team interaction and communication during resuscitation. Simulated clinical scenarios encourage active, hands-on participation through learning stations where students will practice essential skills individually, as part of a team, and as a team leader.

Objectives include:

  • Basic life support skills, including effective chest compressions, use of a bag-mask device, and use of an AED
  • Recognition and early management of respiratory and cardiac arrest
  • Recognition and early management of peri-arrest conditions such as symptomatic bradycardia
  • Airway management
  • Related pharmacology
  • Management of ACS and stroke
  • Effective communication as a member and leader of a resuscitation team
