PALS Prep Course, eLearning Online ECG Rhythm Pediatric

PALS Prep Course, eLearning Online ECG Rhythm Pediatric

Price: $55.00

This convenient online course introduces healthcare providers to normal pediatric cardiac rhythms and prepares them to recognize basic pediatric cardiac arrhythmias in clinical practice.

The Online ECG Pediatric Rhythm course is an excellent introduction to the PALS curriculum. The PALS course does not teach ECG rhythm recognition, students are required to know how to read and interpret ECG rhythms prior to attending the PALS course. If you have not taken an PALS course for several years and are out of practice or have not been a practicing medical professional for a long while, this is a perfect course to bring you back up to speed on the ECG rhythm recognition and cardiac physiology. Even if you are practicing medical professional or fresh out of nursing school this course will boost your knowledge and confidence in dealing with pediatric cardiac emergencies.

General Overview

This self-directed, online course is for healthcare professionals who need basic pediatric rhythm recognition skills, telemetry staff, neonatal and pediatric ICU personnel, ambulatory care personnel, and those preparing for the Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) course. This course allows healthcare providers to gain proficiency in ECG rhythm recognition in an effort to provide better treatment and improve patient outcomes. No skills session is required to complete the course. Upon successful completion, students will receive a certificate of completion and will be eligible to apply for continuing education credit. This course is based on the 2010 American Heart Association Guidelines for CPR and ECC.

Key Features and Benefits This course includes information on:

  • Basic pediatric rhythm understanding
  • The relationship between ECG strip and heart impulses
  • Common arrhythmias  identifying and distinguishing various arrhythmias

Course features:

  • 2-part American Heart Association exam
  • Certificate of completion available to print upon successful completion
  • Eligibility for continuing education credit

Online ACLS Course with Skills Check (AHA eLearning)

eLearning Online ACLS Course with Skills Check

This Course includes all three parts for ACLS Certification

Part #1 - Online Course

Part #2 - Classroom Skills Practice

Part #3 - Classroom Skills Test

This BRAND NEW course from the American Heart Association has been updated to reflect new science based on the 2010 AHA Guidelines for CPR and ECC.

HeartCode® ACLS is an official, self-directed, comprehensive eLearning program from the American Heart Association (AHA). HeartCode® ACLS Part 1 uses eSimulation technology to present realistic patient scenarios. Students are presented with a team dynamics lesson, 10 ACLS hospital-based case scenarios, and a written exam. While interacting with the program, students assess each patient, formulate a treatment plan based on ACLS guidelines, and provide treatment. Successful completion of Part 1, the cognitive component, and Parts 2 and 3, skills practice and testing with an AHA ACLS Instructor or a voice-assisted manikin (VAM) system, meets the requirements for obtaining an AHA ACLS Provider course completion card.

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  1. Recognize and initiate early management of periarrest conditions that may result in cardiac arrest or complicate resuscitation outcome
  2. Demonstrate proficiency in providing BLS care, including prioritizing chest compressions and integrating automated external defibrillator (AED) use
  3. Recognize and manage respiratory arrest
  4. Recognize and manage cardiac arrest until termination of resuscitation or transfer of care, including immediate post–cardiac arrest care
  5. Recognize and initiate early management of acute coronary syndromes, including appropriate disposition
  6. Recognize and initiate early management of stroke, including appropriate disposition
  7. Demonstrate effective communication as a member or leader of a resuscitation team and recognize the impact of team dynamics on overall team performance

This continuing education activity is certified for physicians (ACCME/AMA), nurses (ANCC), pharmacists (ACPE), and EMS Practitioners (CECBEMS).
