Twenty years ago, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the
American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) joined forces to develop
the highly regarded Advanced Pediatric Life Support program, or APLS.
The Fifth Edition of APLS: The Pediatric Emergency Medicine Resource
represents a comprehensive body of knowledge in pediatric emergency

APLS offers emergency physicians, pediatricians, nurses, paramedics,
and other allied health professionals the advanced knowledge and skills
necessary to assess and manage critically ill or injured children during
the first hours in the emergency department or office-based setting.

Developed by expert authors, editors, and faculty from both the AAP and
ACEP, APLS is an inclusive teaching and learning system for healthcare
providers. Each chapter is case based and covers the key elements of
assessment, diagnosis, testing, treatment, and disposition.
