Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) Program
The goal of the PALS Provider Course is to teach students how to recognize infants and children at risk for cardiopulmonary arrest and to provide students with strategies for preventing cardiopulmonary arrest in infants and children. This course teaches students how to perform the cognitive and psychomotor skills for resuscitating and stabilizing infants and children in respiratory failure, shock, or cardiopulmonary arrest. Skills in bag-mask ventilation, management of airway, defibrillation and cardioversion, use of AEDs for children older than one year, and rhythm management are emphasized.
A PALS course completion card is issued to students who successfully pass the written exam and skills test.
