Program Impact

Hospitals report the use of crash carts up to 10 times a week, average of two children treating on per week. That equates to 27 children a day or one child every hour of every day. Since 2009, 115,544 children have been saved. As a result, expansion across the country of this program is one of our biggest priorities. In April 2013, we conducted our first PALS course for nurses at Children’s Hospital Number 1 in Ho Chi Minh City. The PALS curriculum was preceded with an extra day of lectures on Basic Life Support. All 30 nurses participating, passed the course.
