Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) is an advanced resuscitation course for the recognition and intervention of cardiopulmonary arrest or other cardiovascular emergencies in pediatric patients. This advanced-level course builds on skills learned in a Basic Life Support (BLS) Provider course and/or a Pediatric Emergency Assessment, Recognition and Stabilization (PEARS) Provider course. Designed for healthcare providers who either direct or participate in the management of critically ill pediatric patients, learners will apply their BLS skills as well as expect practice and training in a systematic approach to pediatric assessment, treatment algorithms and high-performance teams to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children. Become a practiced and strong member or lead a PALS team with this important training program.
