The Heart Educational Advancement Research and Training (HEART) Foundation Inc.

Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) training

The program on Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) at the Philippine Heart Center was initially incorporated in the ACLS. In November 2006, a group of PALS-trained cardiologists and pulmonologists initialized the PALS program as a separate course with the objective of providing a more extensive to pediatric resuscitation.

The PALS program is a 16-hour course which caters to medical (nurses, medical students, interns and doctors) and paramedical personnel who are interested in furthering their knowledge on pediatric resuscitation.

The course includes lectures on recognition of respiratory Failure and shock, fluid therapy and medications, cardiac rhythm disturbances, trauma and newborn resuscitation, integration of cases and post arrest stabilization.

There are also skill stations on pediatric basic life support, airway and ventilation, and vascular access using state of the art training materials.

There are interactive sessions, which are held to integrate knowledge and skills into a clinically useful discipline.

At the end of this program, each participant is then expected to be competent and knowledgeable in the following:

  • Basic Life Support (pediatric CPR, management of foreign body aspiration)
  • Pediatric intubation and resuscitation (including newborns)
  • Interpretation and management of common pediatric arrhythmias
  • Vascular access
  • Common medications used in resuscitation

This PALS training is accredited by the Philippine Pediatric Society.
