Intended Audience

This course is intended for healthcare providers with clinical responsibilities in pediatric critical care settings including nurses, physicians, paramedics, respiratory therapists, physician’s assistants, residents or fellows, and medical or nursing students in training.

All participants must have a current Basic Life Support Provider certification to participate in this course.

Course Description

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
  • Performing early interventions for the treatment of shock
  • Differentiating between unstable and stable patients with arrhythmias
  • Describing clinical characteristics of instability in patients with arrhythmias
  • Implementing post–cardiac arrest management
