EMSP 1410 Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support

2.0 - 0.0 - 2.0

Course Description

The Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support course is designed to provide the practicing pre-hospital care provider with a specific body of knowledge related to the pre-hospital assessment and care of the trauma patient. It is stressed that this is a continuing education program and contains information that may be a review for some or all participants. The uniqueness of this program rests not with an entirely new body of knowledge but instead with advances in pre-hospital trauma intervention techniques. New combinations and applications of existing skills and knowledge are being used to better the patient's chances at surviving traumatic events.
