PEDIATRIC ADVANCED LIFE SUPPORT (P.A.L.S.)
The Pediatric Advanced Life Support Provider Course is designed to aid the pediatric healthcare provider in developing the knowledge and skills necessary to efficiently and effectively manage seriously ill infants and children. During this 2 day course held at the McGill Medical Simulation Centre, students will learn how to assess for evidence of respiratory and circulatory compromise, establish treatment priorities and intervene when necessary to stabilize the child. Students will also review treatment of the respiratory and circulatory systems, management of cardiac arrest and arrhythmias and immediate post-resuscitation care. This course is recognized and certified by the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Candidates receive the two year PALS Provider Card.
