Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS): Student Provider Course
The Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS): Student Provider Course is intended to provide one acceptable method for safe, immediate management and the basic knowledge necessary to assess a patient’s condition rapidly and accurately, resuscitate and stabilize the patient according to priority, determine if the patient's needs exceed a facility's capabilities, arrange appropriately for the patient’s inter-hospital or intra-hospital transfer, and assure that optimum care is provided. The next ATLS student/student refresher course will be offered in October 2014. The cost is $1,000.
The symposium provides an ideal mix of the traditional standard-of-care principles with cutting-edge, forward-moving practices. It explores issues related to surgical technique, resuscitation, inflammation and infection, respiratory care, nutrition, prehospital care, and ethics.
