Paediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS)

Dealing with a medical emergency can be stressful but it’s even more nerve-racking when it comes to emergencies in small children. Paediatric resuscitation is particularly difficult to manage due to factors such as age/weight differences, dose calculations and emotional factors associated with treating a sick child.

In situations like these, you are not only dealing with an emergency involving a paediatric patient but also the parents or caregivers.
