Another step for nursing carrer, I am PALS certified from American Heart Association.
PALS: Pediatric Advanced Life Support, it is an advanced course for responding emergency situations among infant and pediatric population. Total hours of class including test was 8 hours, but it was worth worthy. During course hours you will get detailed information about CPR and AED. CPR administration by 1 rescuer and 2 rescuer, and also you will get chance to go through respiratory distress, respiratory failure, various kind of shock, and cardiac dis-rhythmia. Also teaches you detailed information about assessment, intervention and evaluation during the crisis. You will also get information how to lead a crisis or a code.
I found it as a helpful course. For more information go to American Heart Association.
