Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS)

PALS is a specialty certification that specifically teaches medical professionals’ life-saving care to infants and children. It is designed to teach rescuers how to properly assess patients, provide advanced interventions, and utilizing scenarios while applying critical thinking skills. It reinforces the important concepts of a systematic approach to pediatric assessment, basic life support, PALS treatment algorithms, effective resuscitation, and team dynamics.
