    Simulator-Mediated Advanced Pediatric Life Support Course

    Max: 32 participants

    Requirement: Successful previous completion of PALS or APLS course. Only for physicians who are routinely involved in the care of critically ill or injured children. These include emergency room physicians, pediatricians, and senior emergency medicine and pediatric trainees.

    Up to 7.5 Mainpro-C/MOC Section 2 credits.

    Designed to train physicians to assess and manage critically ill children during the first hour in the emergency department. The aim is to help the clinician detect an imminently toxic child and institute treatment without delay. The course consists of presentations, simulator-mediated practical skills stations, and case-based discussions. The presentations include pediatric assessment, maltreatment, surgical emergencies, orthopedic trauma, and common toxins and poisons. The skills covered include assisted and mechanical ventilation, advanced airway, vascular access intraosseous and central, and chemical electrical cardioversion. The discussions entail respiratory emergencies, shock, Central Nervous System problems, pediatric trauma, and neonatal emergencies.

    This APLS course is unique in North America as it incorporates the simulator in the skills stations and small group discussions. The participants will work in teams on a pediatric and a neonatal simulator to resuscitate critically ill children and neonates in various real life scenarios. The 2011 resuscitation guidelines will be introduced and practiced in the simulated scenarios.

    Required preparatory work involves pre-reading The Pediatric Emergency Medicine Resource, Fifth Edition. Upon successful completion of the course, the participant will receive the American College of Emergency Medicine (ACEP) Certificate.  In order to obtain the ACEP certificate, the participant is required to attend all didactic and small group sessions and achieve 70% on the end-of-the-course written examination.

    APLS is accredited for MOC Section 2/Traineeship. The CFPC recognizes the APLS program for Mainpro-C credits. Participants who complete the program of study but do not pass the certification examination may still claim Mainpro-M1 credits for the classroom component of the program.

    Course: $949
    APLS 5th Edition Manual: $140
