Course Description

HeartCode PALS is a comprehensive program that utilizes online videos and simulated pediatric emergencies to reinforce important concepts of a systematic approach to basic life support, effective resuscitation, pediatric assessment, PALS treatment algorithms and team dynamics.  Using eSim technology, students assess and treat pediatrics in virtual clinical scenarios, while also applying their knowledge to real-time decision-making and skills development. Debriefings and coaching are provided immediately after each simulation. The exam will be completed online as well.

Due to COVID-19, are you teaching virtually or offering online classes?

Although we do offer other classes virtually, the AHA requires that CPR/BLS, ACLS, and PALS students come into our facility to perform hands-on skills in the classroom. Students have two options: 1. Traditional classroom course. 2. Complete the online course and exam, then come in for the skills session.
