Paediatric life support instructors courses in Spain.
Between October 1996 and February 1998 we have provided five PLS instructors courses for 127 physicians.
The instructor course takes 20-24 h over in 3 days, with 20 36 students per course.
Theory classes last 5 h and practical stations between 14 and 18 h. Theory classes include : types and organisation of paediatric courses, resuscitation material, methodology of education, didactic methods, and methods of evaluation.
The practical classes include techniques of oral expression, resuscitation material, and methodology, and evaluation of basic life support, airway and ventilation, venous and intraosseous access, diagnosis and treatment of arrythmias, neonatal resuscitation and advanced resuscitation.
At the end of the course the students perform an anonymous written evaluation of the course with scores between I (very bad), 2,3,4 and 5 (very good).
Theoretical aspects practical classes, methodology, and organisation of the PLS instructors courses are considered satisfactory by the students.
We conclude that PLS instructors courses are important for assuring the uniformity and quality of paediatric life support courses.
