Overview

Pediatric cardiac arrest codes need to be performed according to AHA current guidelines and this course has been updated to reflect the new science in the 2015 AHA Guidelines Update for CPR and ECC. Health care providers involved in codes need current certifications and demonstrate proficiency in cardiac arrest algorithms.

UK HealthCare developed this systematic, team-based recertification process in conjunction with First Response of the Bluegrass to meet these needs.

Pre-test
Before registering for a live simulation activity, it will be necessary to purchase a PALS textbook AND complete the pre-test. The text can be purchased from First Response. The link to and password for the pre-test is located at the bottom of Page ii of the text book. Complete the pre-test at the American Heart Association website at www.heart.org/eccstudent.

You MUST bring copies of the Certificate of Completion for the online modules and the Pre-Test Certificate to the live simulation.
