The Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) program can teach you a systematic, concise approach to the care of a trauma patient.
Its courses provide you with a safe and reliable method for immediate management of injured patients.
This course teaches 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 inter-hospital transfer and assure 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.
