Pediatric Emergency Assessment, Recognition, and Stabilization (PEARS) Course Description
The PEARS Provider Course prepares healthcare providers caring for pediatric patients with foundational skills to assess, recognize, and participate in the initial management of respiratory and/or cardiovascular emergencies and cardiopulmonary arrest. Active case-based instruction will be used to teach students to provide appropriate lifesaving interventions within the initial minutes after response until the child is transferred to an advanced life support provider.
The Heart and Stroke Foundations PEARS Course offers:
- The latest resuscitation science for improved patient outcomes
- Enriched course content, including simulations, state-of-the-art 3-D animations, video scenarios and thought-provoking examples of real pediatric emergency cases, engaging students in robust dialogue and confirming their understanding of the educational material they have received.
- Enhanced features that provide course flexibility, by allowing instructors to incorporate local protocols into their training, while still ensuring that all learning objectives are met.
The goal of the PEARS Provider Course is to improve outcomes for pediatric patients by preparing healthcare providers in assessment, early recognition, prompt communication, and initial intervention in patients with respiratory emergencies, shock, and cardiopulmonary arrest by using high-performance team dynamics.
The Heart & Stroke Pediatric Emergency Assessment, Recognition, and Stabilization (PEARS) Course is for healthcare professionals and others who might encounter pediatric emergency situations during their work, including Physicians and nurses not specializing in pediatrics, Nurse practitioners, Physician assistants, EMS, Respiratory therapists, Prehospital and in-facility healthcare providers (outside of critical-care areas), Outpatient clinic staff, School-based providers and any other healthcare professional who infrequently sees critically ill or injured infants and children.

Students will have the opportunity to learn the following:
• Performing child and infant cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
• Using oxygen delivery and airway management equipment
• Using shock management equipment and a method for giving rapid fluid boluses
Pediatric assessment: A systematic approach
• 4 types of acute respiratory problems
• 2 types of acute circulatory problems
• 2 types of cardiac arrest
Leadership: Communication and other important elements of team dynamics as they relate to resuscitation.
