PreHospital Trauma Life Support  (PHTLS) Provider Course
9th Edition
 
Cost: $295.00           Times: 9am - 6pm        Locations: Vary check flyer

 

The 2-day PHTLS Course is designed to provide healthcare providers with a prehospital trauma care philosophy, stressing the need to treat multi-system trauma patients as a unique entity with specific needs. This scenario based course focuses on the trauma patient in the prehosptial environment, understanding the importance of a rapid assessment, rapid extrication and the treatment of multi-system trauma patients. 

Rapidly assessing a trauma patient to identify life-saving care is at the heart of the ninth edition of PHTLS. It takes 2 minutes or less for a patient to exsanguinate. No other intervention prehospital care providers perform is more important than stopping that level of bleeding in trauma patients. To reflect this, PHTLS, Ninth Edition utilizes the XABCDE patient assessment mnemonic to place exsanguinating hemorrhage at the forefront of every patient encounter. The importance of XABCDE (eXsanguinating hemorrhage, airway, breathing, circulation, disability, and expose/environment) is reinforced in every clinical chapter.

 

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to recognize, identify and treat multi-system trauma patients; relate the pathophysiology of injuries; and have a more comprehensive understanding of prehospital trauma interventions.
