Abstract

Most of the 2000 Guidelines related to PALS remain unchanged. The changes that were made are based on a review of the literature and were made to simplify the overall management of the critically ill child. Despite these changes, the primary goals of PALS--early recognition of respiratory failure and shock and prevention of cardiopulmonary arrest--remain unchanged.
