Advanced Trauma life support ( ATLS ):
The ATLS is a three day course, developed by the American College of Surgeons and its Committee on Trauma to train doctors on the early care of trauma patients through interactive tutorials, skills teaching and simulated patient management scenarios. ATLS is primarily directed at providing initial care during the “Golden Hour.” This is the window of opportunity for the physician to have the greatest impact on morbidity and mortality of the trauma patient.
Objectives:Upon completion of the course, the participant will be able to:
Assess the 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 definitive care.
Ensure that optimum care is provided.
