This American Heart Association PEARS course is designed to meet the needs of healthcare providers who encounter children but do not need the full Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) Course.
Providers must recognize a child with a potentially life-threatening condition and enlist the help of more advanced providers.
Because recognition of such children is paramount to improving outcomes, this course focuses on pediatric assessment and recognition skills with lesser emphasis on management.
This course is designed to enable you:
- To recognize a seriously ill or injured child using the general primary assessments
- Understand and apply the "assess-categorize-decide-act" approach
- Demonstrate effective CPR
- Stabilize a seriously ill or injured child
- Practice effective team interaction
The goal is to stop progression toward heart and lung failure and cardiac arrest.
PEARS certification is valid for two years.
- Fee: $225
- Download, print and return this registration form.
