This Web-based, self-paced program uses eSimulation technology to allow students to assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings. In this environment, students apply their knowledge to real-time decision-making and skills development. Debriefings and coaching are provided immediately after each simulation to facilitate learning about pediatric advanced life support. A convenient alternative for PALS training, this online course allows students to train at their own pace and on their own schedule. This course is based on the 2010 American Heart Association Guidelines for CPR and ECC.
This course may be used for initial or renewal certification, and teaches healthcare providers the knowledge and skills needed to recognize and prevent cardiopulmonary arrest in infants and children. It is intended for healthcare providers who respond to emergencies in infants and children, including 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 their job or other requirements.
