HomePALS Information

 
 
 

PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support)

 
Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) is a classroom, video-based, Instructor-led
course that uses a series of simulated pediatric emergencies to reinforce the important
concepts of a systematic approach to pediatric assessment, basic life support, PALS
treatment algorithms, effective resuscitation and team dynamics. 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 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.

Features
  • Classroom-based works well for learners who prefer group interaction
    and instructor feedback while learning skills’
  • Co-branded with the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)
  • Course uses learning stations for practice of essential skills simulated
    clinical scenarios that encourage active participation
  • Hands-on class format reinforces skills proficiency

American Heart Association HeartCode PALS

HeartCode® PALS


HeartCode® PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support) 
is a blended learning
format that combines online classroom training with in-person skills training to reduce
the actual in-person classroom time to less than 4-hours (full in-person classroom courses
are 1 to 2-day courses). This course teaches healthcare providers knowledge and skills
needed to recognize and prevent cardiopulmonary arrest in infants and children.

 

This program uses eSimulation technology to allow students to assess and treat
patients in virtual healthcare settings. In this environment, students apply their
knowledge to real-time decision-making and skills development. Debriefings and
coaching are provi
ded immediately after each simulation to facilitate learning about
pediatric advanced life support.

 

HeartCode PALS is for healthcare providers who respond to emergencies in infants
and children. This includes 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 and are seeking an alternative
method for completing an initial or update PALS course.

COURSE FORMAT / TIME

 

Blended Learning (online portion, followed by hands-on session)

The online portion can be completed in approximately 6-9 hours depending on
the level of knowledge and clinical experience of the student. The hands-on
session for HeartCode PALS will take approximately 3-4 hours.
