Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Charlotte A. Walker, MNSc (Central Arkansas Veterans Hospital)
Description: This is a study guide for successfully completing a Pediatric Advanced Cardiac Life Support course. This edition has been updated to meet the 2005 American Heart Association Guidelines for PALS.
Purpose: The purpose is to help healthcare professionals study, learn, and retain critical information needed for the emergency care of children and improve performance on the PALS final exam. Numerous healthcare professionals are required to pass a PALS course each year. The book is easy and fast to read, while closely following current American Heart Association guidelines.
Audience: It targets the broad audience of healthcare professionals who care for children: physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, paramedics, and EMTs. The authors have current backgrounds in the emergency care of children.
Features: To review the content covered in a PALS course, this book uses a question and answer format to decrease the amount of reading and to emphasize the main learning points. Only the correct answers are provided. This format will help the reader avoid wasting time reading, reviewing, and possibly learning incorrect information.
Assessment: The American Heart Association's Pediatric Advanced Life Support: Provider Manual, 2nd edition (2007) has more complete information, but this study guide is attractive for its time-saving, easy to read format that emphasizes major learning points.
