PHTLS: Prehospital Trauma Life Support, Eighth Edition is the next step in the evolution of the premier global prehospital trauma education program. For three decades, PHTLS has improved the quality of trauma patient care and has saved lives. The Eighth Edition of PHTLS continues the PHTLS mission to promote excellence in trauma patient management by all providers involved in the delivery of prehospital care through global education.

 

This legendary program was first developed by the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) in the early 1980s in cooperation with the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma (ACS-COT). Its medical content is continuously revised and updated to reflect current, state-of-the-art knowledge and practice. PHTLS promotes critical thinking as the foundation for providing quality care. It is based on the belief that EMS practitioners make the best decisions on behalf of their patients when given a good foundation of knowledge and key principles. The Eighth Edition of PHTLS features a new chapter, Physiology of Life and Death. This chapter creates a solid understanding of the physiology of life and pathophysiology that can lead to death. This understanding is essential for the prehospital care provider if abnormalities are to be found and addressed quickly in the trauma patient.

This PHTLS Hybrid Course is a 16-hour continuing Education Course in which a portion of the course is taken online in an interactive, web-based format, followed by a 1-day face-to-face session for skill station instructions and evaluations.  The online component is 8 hours and replaces the standard didactic lectures delivered in the classroom setting.  The one-day hands-on patient simulation skill stations portion is completed live at the course site.
