About this Course 

PEARS is a 1-day interactive and hands-on course developed by the American Heart Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics.  The PEARS Provider course helps healthcare providers develop the knowledge and skills needed for emergency evaluation and initial stabilization of seriously ill infants and children. 

PEARS is ideal for;

  • Health professionals who are new to pediatrics,
  • Health professionals who are required to care for children as part of their current role, but on an infrequent basis,
  • Health professionals who are interested in taking the Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) and are looking for a course that will help them build knowledge and skills in preparation for PALS, and
  • Health profession students who are interested in pursuing careers caring for children.

Inpatient, Outpatient, and Pre-Hospital providers are encouraged to attend.

PEARS includes:

· Pediatric assessment, including common pediatric presentations/findings

· Recognition and management of respiratory problems

· Recognition and management of shock

· Recognition and management of cardiac arrest

· Resuscitation team concept
