The ACLS and PALS course builds on the foundation of lifesaving Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Providers skills, emphasizing the importance of continuous, high-quality CPR. This advanced course highlights the importance of team dynamics and communication, systems of care, and immediate post-cardiac arrest care. ACLS also covers airway management and related pharmacology.
Skills are taught in large-group sessions and small-group learning and testing stations where case-based scenarios are presented.
This instructor-led, classroom-based PALS course is an essential resource for training physicians, nurses, and emergency medical care providers in PALS. Also useful as a pre- and post-course reference book.
The ACLS course covers:
- ACLS algorithms
- Immediate post-cardiac-arrest care
- Airway management
- Rhythm recognition
- High-quality CPR

The PALS course covers:
The classroom- and video-based, instructor-led PALS course uses a series of simulated pediatric emergencies to reinforce the important concepts of a systematic approach to pediatric assessment, basic life support, PALS treatment algorithms, effective resuscitation, and team dynamics. The goal of the PALS Course is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children, resulting in improved outcomes. Manual includes information on:
- Pediatric emergencies
- Concepts of a systematic approach to pediatric assessment
- PALS treatment algorithms
- Effective resuscitation
