Colorado Springs Pediatric Emergency Assessment Recognition & Stabilization (PEARS)
This Colorado Springs Pediatric Emergency Assessment Recognition & Stabilization (PEARS) class addresses a gap in the number of health care providers who see pediatric patients and who do not require the advanced skills of PALS. The main focus of PEARS is prevention, and specifically the assessment, recognition and stabilization of pediatric victims at risk of severe cardiopulmonary distress.
Through unique learning tools, such as video-based simulation, providers can see and hear critically ill children with whom they do not typically come in contact. This will equip them to recognize the symptoms of pediatric victims, and thus begin stabilization prior to arrest. The course is video-based with instructor led discussion and simulation. Students participate, practice, and complete various skills and learning situations.
