The goal of PALS is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children to improve outcomes. In this class students will learn: to differentiate between respiratory distress and failure, early interventions for respiratory distress and failure, and pediatric cardiac arrest management. Students will be able to differentiate between compensated and decompensated (hypotensive) shock, and provide interventions for the treatment of shock. HeartCode PALS is the AHA’s blended learning delivery method where the combination of eLearning (online portion), in which a student completes part of the course in a self-directed manner, is followed by a hands-on session.
Prerequisite: Students must have completed a CPR class and be a healthcare professional. Students must purchase and complete the à online portion ß of the class and submit the completed certificate to Meghan Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org 3 days prior to the class.
