Resuscitation Tools

Understanding that resuscitation tools are available is an essential component of PALS. These adjuncts are broken down into two subcategories: medical devices and pharmacological tools. A medical device is an instrument used to diagnose, treat, or facilitate care. Pharmacological tools are the medications used to treat the common challenges experienced during a pediatric emergency. It is important that thorough understanding is achieved to optimally care for a child or an infant that needs assistance.
