Author: Dr. Karl Disque
The goal of the PALS health care Course is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children, resulting in improved outcomes. This health care first aid course uses a series of simulated pediatric emergencies to reinforce the important concepts of a systematic approach to pediatric assessment, first aid, health care, basic life support, PALS treatment algorithms, effective resuscitation and team dynamics. Our medical education training material is created and maintained by practicing physicians, based on the American Heart Association Standards and Guidelines(2015-2020). PALS is a series of protocols to guide responses to life-threatening clinical events. These responses are designed to be simple enough to be committed to memory and recalled under moments of stress.
- PALS is often performed on children and infants, PALS providers should be proficient in BLS.
- PALS algorithms are based on the current understanding of best practices to deliver positive results in life-threatening cases and are intended to achieve the best possible outcome for the child or the infant during an emergency.
- The individual algorithms included within this app are: Basic Life Support(BLS), Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS), Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), AED and First Aid
Approximately, every five years, the AHA updates the guidelines for PALS. The content contained herein is based on the most recent AHA publications on PALS and will periodically compare previous and revised recommendations for a comprehensive review.
