Description

The Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) Provider Class is intended for healthcare providers such as physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, paramedics, respiratory therapists, and other healthcare providers who initiate and direct advanced life support in pediatric emergencies.  At the conclusion of this class, the learner will be able to discuss the new “evaluate-identify-intervene” approach, explain the purpose and components of the general assessment, evaluate respiratory or circulatory problems, recognize signs that a child is in respiratory distress or respiratory failure, recognize clinical signs and symptoms of shock, discuss management of shock, recognize and manage cardiac rhythms, and select appropriate medications for treatment of symptomatic cardiac rhythms.
 
This class is a two-day class, approximately 14 hours total.  The PALS Provider Manual is required for this class and completion of a self-assessment (pretest) is mandatory.
