2015 Guidelines PALS Course
100% classroom training means students are with an AHA instructor for their entire learning experience.
Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS)
PALS is a classroom, video-based, Instructor-led course that uses a series of simulated pediatric emergencies to reinforce the important concepts of a systematic approach to pediatric assessment, basic life support, PALS treatment algorithms, effective resuscitation and team dynamics.
AHA Blended Learning courses combine the flexibility of online training with in-person skills practice and testing.
HeartCode PALS is the AHA’s PALS blended learning delivery method. Blended learning is a combination of eLearning, in which a student completes part of the course in a self-directed manner, followed by a hands-on session.
The online portion of this comprehensive eLearning program uses eSimulation technology to allow students to assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings.
PEARS® (Pediatric Advanced Emergency Assessment, Recognition and Stabilization)
This course teaches providers who infrequently deal with pediatrics how to use a systematic approach to quickly assess, recognize the cause, and stabilize a pediatric patient in an emergency situation. PEARS prepares providers to provide appropriate lifesaving interventions within the initial minutes of response until a child can be transferred to an advanced life support provider.
