PALS, anyone?

  1. Hello, All.

    I've never taken PALS before. I am thinking of taking the class either later this year or sometime next year when my ACLS renewal is due.

    Is there a way to get a head start now to maybe review things so my nerves about it all will calm down? If so, which books/websites/etc does everyone recommend for a "newbie" to PALS like me?

    Any and all assistance is GREATLY appreciated!

    Thank you!

    there are some great PALS texts out there that are not AHA that are a little less dry to read. Amazon carries them one is actually called PALS, also might check with the person or organization that gives the class you plan to take. Most of them will recommend something besides the AHA text as the text in AHA is not designed for the average reader. I'm an AHA instructor so I can say that. Also have to recommend if you haven't done the new ECC 2005 CPR you take it before ACLS and PALS. Also don't think the new PALS material is ready just yet either ACLS just was released.
