The PHTLS courses are designed to provide healthcare providers with a pre-hospital trauma care philosophy, stressing the need to treat the multi-system trauma patient as a unique entity with specific needs. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to recognize, identify and treat multi-system trauma patients, relate pathophysiology of injuries, and have a more comprehensive understanding of pre-hospital trauma interventions. Topics covered include - kinematics of trauma, identification of the mechanism of injury, patient assessment, airway management, shock, specific traumatic injuries (including head, spinal, thoracic, abdominal, musculoskeletal, burns, blunt and penetrating trauma) pediatric trauma, geriatric trauma, environmental trauma, pediatric assessment, rapid extrication, traumatic brain injuries, spinal immobilization (adult and pediatric), and special considerations such as disaster management and weapons of mass destruction.
