The goal of the PALS health care first aid Course is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children, resulting in improved outcomes. This course uses a series of simulated pediatric emergencies to reinforce the important concepts of a systematic approach to pediatric assessment, first aid, health care, basic life support, PALS treatment algorithms, effective resuscitation, and team dynamics. Our education training material is created maintained by practicing physicians, based on adhering to the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation Standards and Guidelines (2020-2025). PALS health personal care is a series of protocols to guide responses to life-threatening clinical events. These responses are designed to be simple enough to be committed to memory and recalled under moments of stress. This PALS for health care providers let you know about health care law and ethics. PALS ESSENTIALS:

  • Provider who is going to perform PALS is assumed to have maintained and developed competence with not only the materials presented in this handbook but also certain physical skills, including Basic Life Support interventions.
  • PALS is often performed on children and infants, PALS providers should be proficient in BLS for these age groups.
  • PALS algorithms are based on the current understanding of best practices to deliver positive results in life-threatening cases and are intended to achieve the best possible outcome for the child or the infant during an emergency.
  • The individual algorithms included within this app are: Basic Life Support, Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Pediatric Advanced Life Support, Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, AED, and First Aid.
