Pediatric Emergency Assessment, Recognition, and Stabilization (PEARS®)

New edition! 2015 GUIDELINESThe PEARS course helps healthcare providers develop the knowledge and skills needed for emergency evaluation and treatment of seriously ill infants and children. The goal of this course is to improve the quality of care provided, resulting in improved outcomes.

The PEARS course covers:

  • recognition of respiratory distress, shock, and cardiac arrest
  • appropriate lifesaving interventions to take within the initial minutes of response until the child is transferred to an advanced life support provider
  • high-performance team dynamics.

PEARS training is intended for any healthcare provider and others who might encounter pediatric emergency situations in the course of their work, including:

  • physicians and nurses not specializing in pediatrics
  • nurse practitioners
  • physician assistants
  • emergency medical technicians
  • respiratory therapists
  • prehospital and in-hospital healthcare providers (outside of critical-care areas)
  • outpatient clinic staff
  • school-based providers.

Course takes approximately 7.5 hours (without breaks) and is given in an Instructor-led training session. Passing a video-based written exam and skills test with a grade of 84% or higher is required for the awarding of a PEARS course completion card.
