What PALS is

PALS or Pediatric Advanced Life Support is for healthcare providers that respond to emergencies involving infants and children. PALS is a set of guidelines and recommendations that reinforce the important concepts of a systematic approach to pediatric assessment, Basic Life Support (BLS), pediatric treatment algorithms, effective resuscitation and team dynamics, as well as pharmacology and airway management. Simply, PALS is a set of guidelines and knowledge requirements for how an emergency response team is to deal with certain medical emergencies in infants and children until a patient has stabilized, and is out of the care of the emergency team.

PALS Course Content

A PALS course will includes key changes in PALS guidelines, including those set forth by the American Heart Association (AHA) and any state requirements associated with emergency care for children and infants. A PALS course should also include; Cardiac, respiratory and shock case simulations, Management of respiratory emergencies, resuscitation team concepts, cardio rhythm disturbances and electrical therapy, the PALS approach, vascular access, fundamentals of child CPR/AED use and fundamentals of infant CPR. PALS courses through The California ACLS Training Institute are accurate to 2014 AHA guidelines, self-paced, include official PALS student manuals, and allow unlimited testing to make sure you master PALS. Our goal is to equip you with all of the information and practice you need to save children's lives.

The American Heart Association (AHA) and PALS

Founded in 1924 by physicians, the American Heart Association's mission is "\To build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke."\ The American Heart Association is a non-profit organization based in Dallas TX that fosters appropriate cardiac care in a national and to some extent global effort to reduce disability and deaths caused by cardiovascular disease and stroke. The American Heart Association is also responsible for many of the ACLS guidelines used by the vast majority of medical professionals, and the guidelines The California ACLS Training Institute is based on.

Online PALS versus Classroom PALS certification courses

The world is going mobile, and along with it training and continuing education. With the advancements in technology, it is possible to replace virtually all conventional types of classroom training with an online based training. Many organizations and companies have already begun the process of replacing traditional classroom training with etraining. For PALS, the argument is that you cannot practice real world scenarios online. This however is not true. Online training modules allow for advanced simulations tailored to the student audience, and can replicate real world scenarios with incredibly accuracy. Entire college programs are online today, and as technology begins to dominate more facets of our lives, the switch to online based training is inevitable. Online based PALS courses are convenient, fast, cost effective, and every bit as accurate as conventional classroom based training. With your busy schedule, you deserve the ability to get your PALS certification when it's convenient for you, and fits your schedule without compromising the accuracy of the training material. The California ACLS Training Institute recognizes this, and brings you the best official PALS certification courses available anywhere.
