Description

European Pediatric Advanced Life Support (EPALS)
This Resuscitation Council (UK) EPALS course is a 2-day program designed to provide training for multi-disciplinary health care professionals in the early recognition of the child in respiratory or circulatory failure and development of knowledge and core skills required to prevent further deterioration towards respiratory or cardiorespiratory arrest. The course consists of lectures, workshops, skills stations and teaching simulations.
Successful EPALS course participants can apply the skills taught as part of their clinical duties, or to teach them on a regular basis. Participants include doctors, nurses and paramedics working in direct contact with children. All applicants must hold a current clinical appointment and professional healthcare qualification. Medical students in their final year of training can also be accepted as candidates. The EPALS course teaches the knowledge and skills required to:
 Use the structured ABCDE approach for rapid assessment of the seriously ill child,
 Manage the sick child until the arrival of expert assistance,
 Facilitate the development of resuscitation team members and team leaders,
 Use a structured approach to communicate amongst team members during and emergency situation.
