HeartCode® PALS

HeartCode® PALS 

This advanced pediatric course teaches students to use a systematic approach to quickly assess and treat pediatric patients in emergency situations. Students interact with real pediatric patient cases, realistic simulations, and animations where they apply their knowledge to real-time decision-making and skills development. This includes basic life support, PALS treatment algorithms, effective resuscitation skills and team dynamics. Debriefings and coaching are provided immediately after each simulation to facilitate learning. Students who successfully complete the online portion of the course receive a certificate granting them access to a PALS Hands-on Session with an AHA PALS Instructor. Hands-on Skills testing includes child 1-rescuer CPR, child bag mask device, infant 1- and 2-rescuer CPR, and relief of choking (optional). Students must successfully complete both the online portion and the hands-on session to receive a PALS Provider course completion card.
