Pediatric Advanced Life Support – PALS

Description:  The goal of the PALS course is to provide the student with: Information needed to recognize infants and children at risk for cardiopulmonary arrest, information and strategies needed to prevent cardiopulmonary arrest in infants and children and the cognitive and psychomotor skills needed to resuscitate and stabilize infants and children in respiratory failure, shock or cardiopulmonary arrest. PALS is based on simulated clinical scenarios that 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. Realistic simulations reinforce the following key concepts: proficiency in basic life support care, recognizing and initiating early management of pre-arrest conditions, managing cardiac arrest, recognizing other life-threatening clinical situations (such as respiratory distress) and providing initial care, PALS algorithms, and effective resuscitation team dynamics. PALS is appropriate for paramedics, pediatricians, house staff, physicians, respiratory therapists.
