'Anesoft PALS Sim 2012' is the fourth of a series of apps from Anesoft Corporation to improve your resuscitation skills. This app enables you to rehearse pediatric megacode management - anytime, anywhere. With regular practice you will always be ready to run a full cardiac resuscitation for pediatric patients.
You must evaluate the patient and electrocardiogram rhythm, decide on the appropriate management, and guide two assistants through the resuscitation. The two assistants are skilled, but will only do what you tell them to do. You must be the team leader for the resuscitation efforts.
The 8 case scenarios included in this app were written by Kathleen Ventre and Howard Schwid. The first four cases cover ventricular fibrillation. The next two are bradycardia and the final two cases cover supraventricular tachycardia.
We suggest you start with case 1. Use the What Now? button frequently to learn to use the program. The What Now? feature will always tell you the best management decision for the current state of the case. Select a case above and get started.
