Description


The PALS Instructor Manual eBook includes essential information and Lesson Plans that PALS Instructors need to teach the PALS Course, PALS Update Course and provide skills practice and testing for HeartCode® PALS. The PALS Course has been updated to reflect new science in the 2015 AHA Guidelines Update for CPR and ECC.  The PALS Course uses a series of videos and 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. The goal of the PALS Course is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children, resulting in improved outcomes.
