Exactly what I was looking for. Gives you what you need for life support practices from a pediatric viewpoint. Would highly recommend!

Description

Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) Provider Handbook, presented by National Health Care Provider Solutions (NHCPS), is a comprehensive resource intended for health care professionals currently enrolled in a Pediatric Advanced Life Support Certification or Recertification Course. It serves as the primary training material for PALS Certification and Recertification courses provided by National Health Care Provider Solutions (www.nhcps.com). Although it is predominantly intended for use during certification courses, the handbook was also created to serve as daily reference material for both health care professionals and non-health care professionals alike.

Information covered in the handbook includes PALS procedures through a variety of emergency situations, in-depth analysis of resuscitation tools, ECG and electrical therapy review, Basic Life Support techniques, and more. Full-page PALS Algorithms, tables, images, and other visual tools are also included within the handbook. All material included in this handbook is delivered in a manner meant to enhance learning in the most comprehensive and convenient way possible.

This course is written by Dr. Karl F. Disque, a board certified anesthesiologist and registered pharmacist. Dr. Disque has certified thousands of healthcare professionals with his courses in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS), Basic Life Support (BLS), and CPR, AED, and First Aid. This is one of the most effective and user-friendly training manuals on the market because it was created by a team dedicated to life support education with the goal of training people to help save lives.
