ITLS Pediatric

**NOTE**:  This class will be held at the Brenner's Pediatric Trauma Conference at Biotech Place

This one-day course is designed to teach all levels of EMS personnel including first responders, EMTs, paramedics, trauma nurses, emergency nurses, and emergency physicians the skills necessary to recognize mechanisms of injury, assess and perform critical interventions, then package and transport the injured infant or child. Pediatric ITLS uses principles of prehospital trauma care and refines them for specific use on infants and children. These same principles apply for children being transferred from a primary hospital to a tertiary care facility.

Fee:  No Fee (NCBH Employees) but must purchase book ($50)
          $75 (Non-NCBH Students) 

*Note: Book is included in the fee for outside students

Prerequisites

Reading the ITLS Pediatric text and completing the pretest for the course is required. It is highly recommended that students have previously completed an ITLS, PHTLS, or PALS course. Upon completing course registration requirements, Life Support Education staff will provide you with appropriate study materials.

Course Completion

Successful completion requires a score of at least 74% on the written evaluation as well as successful completion of the patient assessment testing stations. Basic personnel (MR & EMT) will take a basic written exam and will only perform the basic level skills in their testing stations. Advanced personnel will take an advanced level written exam and will perform at the advanced level in the testing stations.
