PHTLS

PHTLS - Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support

Overview:

NAEMT's Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) is the gold standard in prehospital trauma education, recognised around the world as the leading continuing education program for Pre-Hospital Emergency Trauma care. The mission of PHTLS is to promote excellence in trauma patient management by 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 is appropriate for EMTs, paramedics, nurses, physician assistants, physicians, and other prehospital providers.
      • Recognised for 16 CPC Points for PHECC-Registered EMTs.

Aim:

PHTLS aims to promote critical thinking as the foundation for improving the quality of trauma care and decreasing mortality.   The two day intensive course is based on the belief that, given a good fund of knowledge and key principles, EMS practitioners are capable of making reasoned decisions to effectively manage trauma patients.

The course utilises the internationally recognised PHTLS textbook and covers the following topics:

      • Physiology of life and death
      • Scene assessment
      • Patient assessment
