Advanced Trauma Life Support® (ATLS®) One-Day Refresher Course

Description

Injured patients present a wide range of complex problems. The ATLS® 10th Edition Student Course presents a concise approach to assessing and managing multiple injured patients. The course presents doctors with knowledge and techniques that are comprehensive and easily adapted to fit their needs. The skills described in the manual represent one safe way to perform each technique, and the American College of Surgeons (ACS) recognizes that there are other acceptable approaches. However, the knowledge and skills taught in the course are easily adapted to all venues for the care of patients.

ACS and its Committee on Trauma (COT) developed the Advanced Trauma Life Support® (ATLS®) program. This program provides systemic and concise training for the early care of trauma patients. ATLS® offers participants a safe, reliable method for the immediate management of an injured patient and the basic knowledge necessary to:

  • Assess the patient’s condition rapidly and accurately
  • Resuscitate and stabilize the patient according to priority
  • Determine if the patient’s needs exceed a facility’s capacity
  • Arrange appropriately for the patient’s inter-hospital transfer (who, what, when, and how)
  • Ensure that optimum care is provided and that the level of care does not deteriorate at any point during the evaluation, resuscitation, or transfer process

Prerequisite

This one-day course is designed for physicians who have completed an ATLS® Course within the past four years. Participants in this course must have an ATLS® Provider Card that is within six months of expiration to be eligible for this one-day refresher course.
