    Jeff, I have now used this for ACLS, PALS and shared with other providers I work with. Excellent reviews. always prepared and I like having many options like mega codes, audio series when driving, or just practice tests. Keep up the good work!

    A great way to prepare and refresh my PALS knowledge base as well to learn new information. I would like to see more Pre Hospital Scenarios for those of us that are actively working in the field.

    Thx

    Hi Jeff,
    Your course is amazing! I have really learned quite a bit. I do have a question. I was taking the final 30 question quiz and question 13 asks about which scenario would require immediate CPR.

    According to the PAL’s manual, in order for CPR to be initiated, the patient must be a) unresponsive, b) no breathing or only gasping(agonal) or c) no pulse or pulse < 60.

    Answer 1 – the patient is not responsive.
    Answers 2 and 4 meet all criteria.
    Answer 3 – the patient IS responsive noted by open eyes and lethargy. The child in answer 3 is still breathing rapidly but has a severely decreased heart rate of 55 – which meets the criteria.

    Question – why wouldn't answer 1 also receive CPR? A Toddler's heart rate is between 98-140. Granted, the listed HR not less than 60 in this scenario, but at 70, it's bradying down, and the child is not responsive (which meets the criteria). Can you please explain this further so I may better grasp concepts? Many thanks!

      This question was designed to assess the providers recognition of the basic criteria for beginning cpr.

      That being said, in a real setting, the provider would need to use their clinical judgement and discretion which may direct a provider to tailor interventions to best treat the scenario that is present before them.

      Kind regards,
      Jeff

    Thank you for this material! This course has helped me to get through all of the information easily. I did great on the written portion and the instructor for the orals said I did really well! Thanks again!

    Are there PALS Video Review Tutorials like the ACLS ones? I can’t seem to find them on your site!

    Thanks,

      At this time, there are not any PALS video review tutorials. I do intend on developing video content in the PALS area but this is under development.

      Kind regards,
      Jeff

    Hi Jeff,
    just passed my PALS. I have used your website for ACLS prep for last 8 years. This was the first time I used it for PALS which is totally different from ACLS. Thank you so much.
    Thanks to your tests, mega codes practices and other info I had no need to open the text book at all.
    Thanks again and see you next year for my ACLS 🙂
