Pediatric Emergency Assessment, Recognition and Stabilization (PEARS)
Thursday September 22,2016 . 9 am to 4:30 pm

PEARS was designed by the American Heart Association for healthcare providers who infrequently see critically ill children such as school, office, and medical/surgical nurses, emergency medical responders/EMT-Bs, Intermediate EMTs and other care providers who may care for children with acute respiratory and cardiac difficulties in a non-critical care setting. The main focus of PEARS is prevention, with a focus on assessment, recognition and stabilization of pediatric victims at risk of severe cardiopulmonary distress. Students are prepared to assess, categorize, decide and act early to stabilize a child in respiratory/cardiac distress.  The course is also recommended for paramedics/critical nurses (off year for PALS) and urgent care center personnel. Cost is $125.00 ($30.00 for NCNEC members).  Click here for the Participant Letter which includes the pre-course requirements.
