Downloadable PALS Algorith or Flowsheet?

  1. I am taking PALS in two days and cannot find any resources to give me a heads-up. I was hoping to find a pocket guide at a bookstore, or a downloadable flow-sheet, or anything. Even the AHA says d/t the transition they have nothing right now to download! My education department has nothing. Can you believe that? I could order something but need it now. Do you know where I can find info I can download from the internet? Thanks!

    Hello, SkateBetty,

    Yes, AHA has the updated pocketbook of the changes. In this, you will find all changes applicable for adults, peds, and neonates:

    Handbook of Emergency Cardiovascular Care

    Handbook of Emergency Cardiovascular Care

    Your TC should provide the students taking PALS with this handbook or something similar. Have you contacted them?

    This book looks fine, but I don't see where you can download it(?). I think you can only order this book and have it sent to you.

    Yes, you are correct. I just posted to let you know that AHA does have something with the new changes.

    You need to check with the entity who is providing the course. Their TC should provide these booklets or something similar.

    Did you not receive a course packet? If not, you need to contact them.
