I spent 15 years as a firefighter and paramedic, and I wish everyone in healthcare knew PEARS.
Let’s face it. Kids show their symptoms differently than adults. They compensate longer and crash quicker. Typically pediatric emergencies are not as common, so it’s even more important to be prepared. If you have PEARS training, you’re able to recognize the emergency and act before it is too late. Those first few heart-wrenching moments are crucial. Knowing PEARS and administering care right away could make all the difference for someone’s child.
PEARS stands for pediatric emergency assessment, recognition, and stabilization.
The goal of PEARS is to improve the outcome and care for pediatric patients facing serious illnesses or injuries until they can receive advanced care.
PEARS covers initial recognition, assessment, and care for young patients immediately following an emergency, generally targeted at those who do not frequently see seriously ill or injured patients. PALS addresses advanced life support methods used by advanced care providers.
To become a PEARS instructor, you need to be a certified medical professional who has in-field experience using the techniques. If you’re interested in joining the SureFire CPR team, contact us.
Before taking a PEARS course, you should have a solid understanding of infant and child BLS skills, such as how to perform CPR and use an AED.
