Be a Pal to the Third Power is a homestudy course that covers the 2015 updates presented by the American Heart Association. This course can help the Nurse to prepare for the AHA PALS Renewal/ Certification course.
In addition, this study guide includes materials to promote ECG understanding and interpretation with basic focus on rates that are too slow, too fast, or collapsed. This study guide also addresses injury prevention which is vital to the pediatric population. There is a scientific discipline that injury is even more effective at saving lives than optimal medical care. Injuries cause more childhood deaths than all other causes combined.
This home study course introduces the 2011 updates researched by the American Heart Association. Good advanced life support starts with good basic life support. Rapid and effective bystander CPR is associated with successful return of spontaneous circulation, yet only 2%-10% of all children who develop out-of-the hospital cardiac arrest survive.
Furthermore it also encompasses advanced life support to include the signs and symptoms of respiratory distress with proper airway adjuncts and FIO2 selection. This study guide includes the sings and symptoms of shock and the appropriate interventions for treatment.
Be A Pal to the Third Power empowers the student by learning how to use a rapid cardiopulmonary assessment to quickly assess and treat a pediatric patient. Scenarios are present for practicing this assessment skill.
Many have studied this study guide and workbook as he or she prepared for PALS certification or recertification. It is written to focus on the basic knowledge of PALS. In depth knowledge of the many aspects of emergency cardiac support comes from experience and continued study. No one can learn all there is to know the first time he or she takes PALS. Most of us don’t need to know all there is to know about Pediatric Advanced Life Support.
For those that need a refresher course for EKG, Part One presents the essentials of EKG rhythm study. If you require extra in addition to the workbook the student may elect to attend NEO’s basic ECG interpretation class prior to the PALS class. Arrangements can be made with your NEO instructor. The PALS healthcare provider must be able to recognize Ventricular Fibrillation, Ventricular Tachycardia, Asystole, Bradycardia and Supraventricular Tachycardia. It is essential that the healthcare provider is able to assess the P wave, QRS complex and T wave.
Several practice tests are presented throughout this workbook with the answers readily available. It is the author’s judgment that the learning student needs to be able to correct his or her answers immediately at the time of study for efficient learning. Nurses Educational Opportunities continually focuses on learning techniques that fit today’s busy lifestyle rather than the traditional techniques of our parents and grandparents. There is certainly much more to learn in today’s healthcare setting than there was in our parent’s or grandparent’s days. You must not only learn but also recall what you learn in any given situation. The author believes that our study guides and class presentations enhance the learning/recalling process.
