Updated to reflect the AHA Guidelines for CPR and ECC, PEARS® helps healthcare providers develop the knowledge and skills needed for emergency evaluation and treatment of seriously ill infants and children.
PEARS teaches providers how to recognize common pediatric emergencies such as: respiratory compromise, shock and cardiac arrest, and provide appropriate lifesaving interventions within the initial minutes of response until the child is transferred to an advanced life support provider. The goal of PEARS is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured infants and children, resulting in improved outcomes.
- Improves competency in pediatric basic life support
- Learning stations and practice reinforce essential skills
- Course video allows students actually see and hear critically ill children
- Enhances skills in recognizing shock, respiratory failure and cardiopulmonary emergencies
- Pediatric assessment
- Assessment and management of respiratory problems
- Recognition and management of shock
- Identification and management of cardiac arrest
- Resuscitation team concept
Because typical PEARS students do not regularly treat critically ill children, the course includes video-based simulation so they can actually see and hear critically ill children.
Target Audience: PEARS is for healthcare providers such as medical and surgical nurses, school nurses, emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and any other healthcare provider who infrequently sees critically ill infants and children but might encounter pediatric patients. This course is not intended for those credentialed for advanced pediatric skills that routinely provide pediatric care.
