What you'll learn

For the best survival and quality of life, pediatric basic life support should be a part of the curriculum for every health care professional. Pediatric Basic life support (PBLS) is a basic level of medical care used to help sustain a child who is experiencing cardiac arrest or respiratory failure until they can be given full medical care by an advanced responder. PBLS can be used in any scenario where breathing or heartbeat has been compromised, such as drowning, heart attack, or severe shock (eg, severe loss of blood). read more »»

PBLS involves performing many tasks simultaneously at a single point of time. PBLS is more comprehensive than CPR alone since it covers additional steps that are not expected from a layperson, as well as techniques for working with other rescuers. The techniques used for PBLS vary slightly depending on whether the victim is an adult, child, or infant. PBLS is the foundation for saving lives after cardiac arrest.

Fundamental aspects of adult PBLS include immediate recognition of sudden cardiac arrest and activation of the emergency response system, early CPR, and rapid defibrillation with an automated external defibrillator (AED). Initial recognition and response to heart attack and stroke are also considered part of BLS. Pediatric BLS is done more cautiously as children are prone to rib fractures.

This module explains the techniques and procedure for performing BLS on a child, Pre-procedure considerations for BLS for a child, correct preliminary actions for BLS for a child, correct procedure for assessing vital signs for BLS for a child., correct procedure for performing CPR for BLS for a child, Differences in procedure and technique for 1-rescuer and 2-rescuer situations. The adult and infant procedures are covered in separate modules.
