PALS Initial Training Class in Sacramento
Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) is a classroom, video-based, Instructor-led course that 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. If you are looking for your PALS Renewal, please visit our PALS Renewal Training Class page.
The PALS Course is for healthcare providers who respond to emergencies in infants and children. These include 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 for job or other requirements.
When a child is in medical distress, it is easy to freeze in terror. The parents are likely to be panicking, and well-meaning people who want to help may be standing around asking what to do. It is impossible to know what you would do in case of an emergency until you have been put in that situation, but practicing on dummy situations is one of the best ways to make sure that you will be able to handle a true emergency when it happens.
Of course, PALS is a skill that you hope never to have to use. But when you do need to use it, this training can make the difference between life and death. Or it can make the difference between severe brain damage to minor or no brain damage. Whether you need PALS training for a job or simply to be prepared in case the worst happens, we are here with the information and training you need, at NorCal Emergency Medical Training. We offer classes in Sacramento, Roseville, and Rancho Cordova.
