Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS)

The Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) Provider Course is designed for healthcare providers who initiate and direct advanced life support beyond basic life support through the stabilization or transport phases of a pediatric emergency, either in or out of hospital. In this course you will enhance your skills in the evaluation and management of an infant or child with respiratory compromise, circulatory compromise, or cardiac arrest. You will actively participate in a series of simulated core cases. These simulations are designed to reinforce important concepts, including: 

  • Identification and treatment of medical conditions that place the child at risk for cardiac arrest
  • The systematic approach to pediatric assessment, including general, primary, secondary and tertiary assessments 
  • The assess-categorize-decide-act approach to assessment and management of a seriously ill infant or child
