This program follows the 2010 AHA Guidelines and is designed to prepare the healthcare provider to manage emergencies in the pediatric 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 and management, applied pharmacology, physical assessment, and management of various cardiac emergencies. This limited enrollment hands-on program allows the practitioner to become the leader in management of various emergencies.  In order to take the course, participants must be current in PALS and have a Level 2 permit.  You will need to complete an online component to meet the Level 2 criteria.  The lecture and online component will provide the necessary Level 2 CE hours.  PALS materials will be sent to prepare for the PALS component.
