  • Online AHA Heartcode PALS

    0 out of 5

    This item is the online portion of the Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) course when taken in a blended-learning format. Once students pass the included exam at the end of the online portion, they participate in a classroom-based training session featuring discussion, skills practice, and testing. Successful completion of both the online and classroom portions, including skills practice and testing with a certified American Heart Association PALS Instructor, qualifies students for a PALS provider course card. The online program includes eSimulations and other interactive activities, plus videos, virtual debriefings, and more. PC and Mac® compatible. Please include an e-mail address when ordering. The access key and instructions on how to log in and register for the course will be e-mailed to you, usually within 1 business day. NOTE: You must purchase one online access key for each student trained. This product is not eligible for the standard 30-day return policy. (Note: Instructors must purchase the standard PALS Instructor materials to teach the blended-learning classroom session.)

HeartCode® PALS Part 1 is a web-based, self-directed program that teaches healthcare providers knowledge and skills needed to recognize and prevent cardiopulmonary arrest in infants and children.

This program 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. Debriefings and coaching are provided immediately after each simulation to facilitate learning about pediatric advanced life support.

  • Part 2*, a hands-on skills practice session with an AHA PALS Instructor.
  • Part 3*, a skills test with an AHA PALS Instructor.

*Parts 2 and 3 should be completed in one “skills practice and testing” session.
