The PALS class includes recognition and treatment of infants and children at risk for cardiopulmonary arrest, the systematic approach to pediatic assessment, effective respiratory management, defibrillation, synchronized cardioversion, intraosseous access, fluid bolus administration and effective resuscitation team dynamics.
PALS is designed for emergency physicians, pediatricians, family physicians, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, paramedics, respiratory therapists, pediatric ICU, operating / recovery room, and other healthcare providers who initiate and direct and / or participate in advanced life support in pediatric emergencies. PALS is also highly recommended for nursing students who are seeking employment in this setting.

ECG is an excellent course to take prior to PALS and is recommended for first time PALS students. If your license or background has not provided you with ECG training and application, or if you need to review and expand your knowledge, we suggest that you complete the ECG class prior to taking PALS for successful completion.
