The course covers child CPR AED and infant CPR, cardiopulmonary arrest, respiratory distress and respiratory failure, compenstated and decompensated shock, instability in patients with arrhyrthmas, and post cardiac arrest management.
The American Heart Assocation requires students to have the current, 2015, PALS Manual to use before, during and after the class. Manuals can be purchased on-line (Amazon) and through the American Heart Association at: https://ebooks.heart.org.
Before taking the PALS couse, students must pass the online PALS Preccourse Self Assessment with a score of 70% or higher. The code to access the Precourse Self Assessment is "pals15".
