When treating trauma patients in the field, seconds count. Recognised as the global leader in education for the prehospital care of trauma patients, Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) offers a unique approach, promoting critical thinking and addressing multi-system trauma to give patients the greatest chance of survival.
The Emergency Response and Rescue Corps Gozo is organising a 2-day Prehospital Trauma Life Support Course on the 24th and 25th of March, at the ERRC Headquarters, Xewkija, Gozo. The cost of the course is €350.
PHTLS, developed in cooperation with the American College of Surgeons’ Committee on Trauma, picks up where other education programs leave off. PHTLS empowers EMS practitioners by focusing on the principles that strengthen their knowledge base and ability to make rapid and appropriate patient care decisions.
PHTLS teaches why a certain procedure is performed, as opposed to simply how a procedure should be performed.The program emphasises a quick assessment of patients with traumatic injuries to improve survival.
Topics covered include the principles of trauma care, scene and patient assessment, airway management, circulation, hemorrhage control and detection/treatment of shock.
Each year, PHTLS is taught to over 40,000 students at some 3,500 training centres in over 50 countries. Students who take this course will leave better prepared to save the lives of patients with the most serious, time-sensitive injuries.
The Course covers several skills including advanced airway and several simulations. The fee includes text books needed, course disposables and certification. Accommodation provided
Course has limited places (15) and early bookings are highly recommended. First come first serve basis. To book a place on the course please email firstname.lastname@example.org
