PALS Initial Provider Course--CLASSROOM BASED
** This course is intended only for students with a current, unexpired AHA PALS Card in their posession.
The American Heart Association PALS course gives healthcare professionals the knowledge and skills to better recognize and treat critically ill infants and children.
The course uses a scenario-based, team approach to teach pediatric emergency management of pediatric patients approaching or already in respiratory or cardiac arrest.
The course covers treatment beyond the first few emergency minutes and goes through stabilizing patients or transport phases of a pediatric emergency, in or out of the hospital.
• Recognition and treatment of infants and children at risk for cardio-pulmonary arrest
• The systematic approach to pediatric assessment
• Effective respiratory management
• Validate skills for 1- and 2-person CPR and AED skills for infant and child
• Defibrillation and synchronized cardioversion
• Intraosseous access and fluid bolus administration
• Effective resuscitation team dynamics
Book: You must have the current edition (current guidelines) of the PALS Class Text in class. You may NOT share books with another student in class. Each student in the class must have their own book. You are NOT required to purchase the book from us, but any student that arrives in class without the book will be required to purchase the book at that time, or will be denied entry to class without refund. There are pre-class assignments that should be completed in the course textbook or online. Please consider purchasing the book at the time of registration (with or without shipping) to ensure you have your copy. ** Please choose the shipping option if you would like the book prior to class, as we are generally not able to offer "in office" pick ups, due to our class schedule.
Pre-requisite: You MUST bring a copy of your CURRENT, VALID American Heart Association BLS for Healthcare Provider Card to class. Please make a copy of your card, as we will be required to submit the copy with the course paperwork. Failure to do so will result in a delay or denial of your new certification.
Card Type: American Heart Association PALS Provider Certification Card. All students will be provided with evidence of completion. Students should receive their cards within 20 business days. In many cases, cards will be received much sooner, but please plan accordingly.
