Class Description
This course is designed to fill the gap in training for a number of healthcare providers who see and treat pediatric patients, but do not, or cannot take a PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support) class because it is too advanced for their Scope of Practice. It is intended for any healthcare provider who may encounter pediatric patients in their profession. It is not intended for those providers whose jobs require credentialing or certification in advanced pediatric skills. The main focus of PEARS is prevention, specifically the assessment, recognition, and stabilization of pediatric patients at risk for severe cardiopulmonary distress. Through video based simulation, students see and hear critically ill children with whom they do not typically come into contact. This equips them with the tools required to recognize the symptoms commonly seen in critically ill pediatric patients, and to begin stabilization prior to cardiopulmonary arrest. The course is video based with instructor led discussions and simulation exercises. Students participate, practice, and complete the various skills and learning stations that are needed to pass the skills tests, as well as a written exam. Topics covered include: Pediatric assessment. Respiratory compromise, arrest recognition, and management, Circulatory compromise, arrest recognition, and management, Shock recognition and management, and Resuscitation team concept.
