HeartCode PALS uses a variety of eLearning assets such as dramatizations, eSimulations, animations, self-directed learning, and interactive activities to teach students BLS knowledge and skills.

After completing the online portion, students attend a structured PALS Hands-On Session with an AHA Instructor. This session focuses on meaningful skills practice, debriefing, team scenarios, discussions of local protocols, and skills testing.

The Heartcode PALS course includes:

  • Performing high-quality Child CPR AED and Infant CPR per AHA BLS recommendations
  • Differentiating between patients who do and do not require immediate intervention
  • Recognizing cardiopulmonary arrest early and beginning CPR within 10 seconds
  • Applying team dynamics
  • Differentiating between respiratory distress and failure
  • Performing early interventions for respiratory distress and failure
  • Differentiating between compensated and decompensated (hypotensive) shock
