Course Background
Starting from Oct 2006, the Hong Kong College of Emergency Medicine will co-joint with the American Heart Association ITO – Hong Kong & Macao to Launch the AHA PALS provider courses in Hong Kong.
 

It is a two days course and the goal of the PALS is to teach health care professionals to recognize infants and children at risk of cardiopulmonary arrest, to provide strategies on prevention of cardiopulmonary arrest in infants and children, and to perform the cognitive and psychomotor skills for resuscitating and stabilizing infants and children in shock, respiratory failure and cardiopulmonary arrest.

 

Skill in bag mask ventilation, management of airway, defibrillation and cardioversion, use of AED in children older than one year old and rhythm management are emphasized.

 

The Hong Kong College of Emergency Medicine has been providing resuscitation training since 1991. All accredited AHA instructors are practicing medical or nursing colleagues with years of teaching experience.
