Pediatric Emergency Assessment, Recognition, and Stabilization (PEARS)

PEARS Initial Course


PEARS Renewal Course


Course Overview

What is the AHA’s Pediatric Emergency Assessment, Recognition, and Stabilization (PEARS) Provider Course?

The PEARS Course teaches students how to recognize respiratory distress, shock, and cardiac arrest and provide appropriate lifesaving interventions within the initial minutes of response until the pediatric patient is transferred to an advanced life support provider.

The goal of the PEARS Provider Course is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured infants and children, resulting in improved outcomes.

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

•Perform BLS consistent with the 2015 AHA Guidelines Update for CPR and ECC

•Evaluate a seriously ill or injured child by using the pediatric systematic approach

•Apply effective team dynamics

•Demonstrate initial stabilization of a seriously ill or injured child, including a child with cardiac arrest, respiratory distress, or shock

PEARS is a classroom-based, Instructor-led course. In the course, skills are taught in large-group sessions and small-group learning and testing stations where case-based scenarios are presented using the course video. The PEARS Course includes child and infant BLS skills practice and testing.
