  3. CPR Competency: You will review how to do CPR or how to use an AED during the course. You must know this in advance especially as they relate to the pediatric patient. The resuscitation scenarios require that your BLS skills and knowledge are current.

Complete the PALS Pre-course Self Assessment on the Student Website.


The code is: palsprovider

Use this assessment to identify areas where you need to increase your knowledge.

  1. PALS algorithms: Be familiar with the PALS algorithms and flowcharts so that you can apply them to clinical scenarios. Note that the PALS course does not present the details of each algorithm.
  2. Supplement your knowledge: Review and understand the information in the PALS Provider Manual. Pay particular attention to the systematic approach to pediatric assessment, the “assess-categorize-decide-act” model, and the management of respiratory and circulatory abnormalities.
