The goal of the Pediatric Advance Life Support or PALS course is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children, resulting in improved outcomes.
The PALS course uses a series of videos and 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 PALS course is designed for healthcare professionals who either direct or participate in the management of respiratory and/or cardiovascular emergencies and cardiopulmonary arrest in pediatric patients. This includes personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care, and critical care units — such as physicians, nurses, and paramedics — as well as others who need a PALS course completion card for job or other requirements.
Pre AHA rules! Each student must have his or her own current copy of the Heartsaver, BLS, ACLS, or PALS Provider Manual in order to attend the class.
An AHA certification card is valid for two years and is awarded upon course completion of Heartsaver, BLS, ACLS, and PALS.
As a courtesy at life Sustaining Training we will notify you by e-mail 30 days prior to your certification card expiring. This is to help you stay up to date for your job.
