Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS)


Course Description

The Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) program can teach you a systematic, concise approach to the care of a trauma patient. ATLS was developed by the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma (ACS COT) and was first introduced in the U.S. and abroad in 1980. ATLS courses provide you with a safe and reliable method for immediate management of injured patients.

Our courses teach you how to assess a patient’s condition, resuscitate and stabilize him or her, and determine if his or her needs exceed a facility’s capacity. It also covers how to arrange for a patient’s interhospital transfer and ensure that optimum care is provided throughout the process. If you don’t treat trauma patients frequently, an ATLS course provides an easy method to remember for evaluation and treatment of a trauma victim.
