PALS INITIAL COURSE

PALS INITIAL COURSE

PALS INITIAL COURSE OVERVIEW

The Pediatric Advanced Life Support course approximately takes 14 hours and 10 minutes, plus additional time is needed for breaks and lunch. PALS is comprised of training that focuses on information for healthcare professionals who initiate and direct advanced life support in critically ill infants and children. The course 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 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. The course includes simulated clinical scenarios that encourage active, hands-on participation through learning stations where students practice essential skills individually, as part of a team, and as team leader. The goal of the PALS Course is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children, resulting in improved outcomes.
