Welcome to your Paediatric Immediate Life Support (PILS) course. We begin with a short introduction to your course so you know what to expect during your training.

To begin your training we will look at Initial Care and PPE. Beginning with Pre-Shift checks, we then learn about communication before the use of PPE, the Chain of Survival, and the Recovery Position.

In this section, you will learn about the ABCDE approach to patient care and AVPU, the method used to assess the level of the patient's disability or mental capacity.

In this section, we look at how the heart works before learning about abnormal heart rhythms, including those that cannot be shocked, and the problem of stable angina, which is common in the UK.

In this section, you will learn about airway management, the different airways we use, and the correct use of suction units.

In this section, you will learn how to carry out a 12 lead ECG as part of ongoing patient assessment, including how to correctly apply and remove them.

This section gives an overview of AED's how to use them and manual defibrillation.

Oxygen is vital for life. In this section you will learn when it is used, the hazards involved when we use it, the effect of COPD on Oxygen Therapy, and the effect of too little (Hypoxia) or too much oxygen in the body (Hyperoxia). We look at the different oxygen cylinders and the equipment we use to administer oxygen.

In this section, we look at DNR and the decision-making process involved when it comes to terminating resuscitation.

In this section, you will learn about choking management in adults, children, and infants.
