HeartCode® PALS is an interactive three-part course designed for healthcare providers who respond to emergencies in infants and children. This includes personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care and critical care units such as physicians, nurses, paramedics and others who need a PALS course completion card and are seeking an alternative (non-classroom) method for completing an initial or update PALS course.. HeartCode Part I is a Web-based, self-paced instructional program that uses eSimulation technology to allow students to assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings. In this environment, students apply their knowledge to real-time decision making and skills development.This program presents 12 pediatric, hospital-based, patient cases with up to four healthcare providers to teach the Pediatric Advance Life Support treatment algorithms. To be successful in any PALS course, students should be able to identify ECG rhythms and should know pharmacology specific to cardiopulmonary arrest and other cardiopulmonary emergencies before beginning the course.
HeartCode Parts II and III incorporates skills practice and skills testing into a single course. During Part II, a certified AHA instructor will allow students time to practice the skills they will be assessed on prior to the Part III skills test. Upon successful completion of the cognitive and skills tests, students receive a course completion card.
