Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) is a two days 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. PALS is geared towards healthcare providers who respond to emergencies in infants and children (Physicians & Registered Nurses) and for personnel in pre-hospital emergency response (Paramedics). Tuition includes course e-manual, PALS pocket reference card set, e-card & e-certificate. Certification is valid for two years. Course content includes:

  • High-quality Child CPR AED and Infant CPR
  • Recognition of patients who do and do not require immediate intervention
  • Recognition of cardiopulmonary arrest early and application of CPR within 10 seconds
  • Apply team dynamics
  • Differentiation between respiratory distress and failure
  • Early interventions for respiratory distress and failure
  • Differentiation between compensated and decompensated (hypotensive) shock
  • Early interventions for the treatment of shock
  • Differentiation between unstable and stable patients with arrhythmias
  • Clinical characteristics of instability in patients with arrhythmias
  • Post–cardiac arrest management





Course completion requirements:

  • A minimum pass mark of 84% on the written test plus
  • Actively participate in, practice and complete all learning stations
  • Pass 2 PALS core case scenarios (1 cardiac and 1 respiratory or shock) as a team leader, providing appropriate medical treatment and demonstrating effective team dynamics
  • Pass the 1- and 2-Rescuer Child BLS with AED and 1- and 2-Rescuer Infant BLS Skills Tests
