Students receive instruction in respiratory, shock, and cardiac emergencies, including airway management, pharmacology, IV and IO, cardiac dysrhythmias, spinal immobilization, and special needs children. All students receive the current PALS textbook, and a pre-test is provided to assist the student in preparing for the course.
