PILS (Paediatric Immediate Life Support) training

PILS (Paediatric Immediate Life Support) was developed and launched in 2007 by Resuscitation Council UK for healthcare professionals who may have to manage and treat paediatric patients in an emergency. Around 17,000 professionals are trained in PILS each year. A PILS qualification is recognised across the UK and Europe, allowing healthcare professionals to save young lives in many parts of the world.

PILS provides a variety of skills, from managing a deteriorating patient, identifying causes of deterioration and treating cardiac arrest in children, to developing team leadership abilities and finding out what it takes to be an effective team member in a cardiac arrest emergency.

Learning outcomes

During the one-day course, you will develop the skills to:

  • understand the structured ABCDE approach that facilitates rapid recognition of seriously ill children;
  • provide appropriate initial treatment interventions to prevent cardiorespiratory arrest;
  • treat children in respiratory or cardiorespiratory arrest until the arrival of a resuscitation team or more experienced assistance;
  • become an effective team member who can respond appropriately in an emergency.
