ATLS is a program that was developed by the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma with the aim to improve care provided to injured patients.This course approaches trauma care in an organized and systematic manner.  Focus is given to care provided during the “first hour”.  Initial assessment and primary management of the patient is emphasized, starting at the time of injury and continuing through initial assessment, intervention, reevaluation, stabilization and transfer to a trauma center for definitive care.
Course Objectives:
  • Assess the patient’s condition rapidly and accurately
  • Resuscitate and stabilize the patient according to priority
  • Determine whether the patient’s needs exceed a facilities resources and capabilities
  • Arrange for the appropriate interhospital transfer for definitive care
  • Ensure that optimum care is provided
