Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS)


PHTLS promotes excellence in trauma patient management through global education of all providers involved in the delivery of prehospital care.  PHTLS is developed by NAEMT in cooperation with the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma.

PHTLS courses improve the quality of trauma care in your area and decrease mortality. The program is based on a prehospital trauma care philosophy, stressing the treatment of the multi-system trauma patient as a unique entity with specific needs. This may require an approach to the trauma patient that varies from traditional treatment modalities.

PHTLS promotes critical thinking as the foundation for providing quality care. It is based on the belief that, given a good fund of knowledge and key principles, EMS providers are capable of making reasoned decisions regarding patient care.

This  PHTLS course provides the latest guidelines that have been proven to reduce morbidity and mortality in the trauma patient. During class students will be using state of the art equipment to practice skills on the trauma patient.  A textbook will be provided with this course.
