(PALS) is required for level 2 permit holders who sedate children, 12 years of
age or under. This program follows the 2010 AHA Guidelines and is designed to

population. The dental office is a unique environment consequently this
program addresses specific issues related to this, especially with the
sedated patient. Contents include, but are not limited to, airway assessment
