The PALS Provider course is designed for first-time participants, participants with expired PALS Provider cards or renewal participants who do not utilize PALS concepts on a regular basis. The American Heart Association PALS course is being totally redesigned to incorporate new science evidence from the 2005 Guidelines and a new teaching methodology. The goal of the PALS Provider course is to teach students how to recognize infants and children at risk for cardiopulmonary arrest, to provide students with strategies for preventing cardiopulmonary arrest in infants and children, and to teach students how to perform the cognitive and psychomotor skills resuscitating and stabilizing infants and children in respiratory failure, shock, or cardiopulmonary arrest. Skills in bag-mask ventilation, management of airway, defibrillation and cardioversion, use of AEDs for children, and rhythm management are emphasized.PALS emphasizes the importance of basic life support CPR to patient survival; the integration of effective basic life support with advanced interventions; and the importance of effective team interaction and communication during resuscitation. Each participant is evaluated individually on his/her ability to demonstrate core course knowledge and skills. This course will prepare you to work as a team member and team leader in a code situation. Course evaluation methods include a skill and practical evaluation using core-based scenarios and an evaluation of the participant's knowledge as measured by a written examination. Participants seeking PALS certification for the first-time must be proficient in the following prior to attending the course: •Performing BLS CPR using the 2010 AHA Guidelines for CPR & ECC •Reading and interpreting ECGs •Understanding PALS pharmacology •Cardiac, Respiratory and Shock Interventions
