AHA PALS Provider Manual
This full-color AHA PALS Provider Manual is the required student text for the Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) course.
General OverviewThe PALS Provider Manual is for use by a single student and provides information needed before, during, and after class. A code within the front cover of the manual provides students access to a website containing mandatory and supplemental information and reference materials, including the PALS Precourse Self-Assessment (must pass with score of 70% or higher), to help them successfully complete the course.
Key Features and BenefitsThe classroom and video-based, instructor-led PALS course 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. The goal of the PALS course is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children, resulting in improved outcomes.
Intended AudienceThe AHA’s PALS Course is for healthcare providers who either direct or participate in the management of respiratory and/or cardiovascular emergencies and cardiopulmonary arrest in pediatric patients. This includes personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care, and critical care units such as physicians, nurses, paramedics, and others who need a PALS course completion card for job or other requirements.
