NAEMT’s Advanced Medical Life Support (AMLS) course is the first EMS education program that fully addresses how to best assess and manage the most common medical crises in patients, offering a “think outside the box” methodology.
AMLS is the most comprehensive EMS continuing education course addressing the assessment and management of patients. It is for all levels of practitioners with a strong commitment to patient care, including first responders, emergency medical technicians, paramedics, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurse anesthetists and physicians.
The course emphasizes the use of scene size-up, history, interactive group discussion on potential treatment strategies, and physical exam to systematically rule out and consider possibilities and probabilities in treating patients’ medical crises. The course offers an initial assessment-based approach that progresses to a diagnostic-based approach to quickly develop the best treatment plan.
When given a case presentation, students who take AMLS will learn to:
- Identify and manage life-threatening presentations for a variety of medical emergencies, while considering comprehensive patient history, focused physical exam, and diagnostic findings.
- Demonstrate with proficiency the application of the AMLS Assessment Pathway to determine appropriate differential diagnoses and management strategies.
- Compare and contrast the concepts of clinical decision-making, pattern recognition, and clinical reasoning used in the determination of differential diagnoses.
AMLS is a sixteen-hour, two-day program that consists of interactive lectures, teaching and evaluation stations. The interactive/case based lectures include the following topics: Altered mental status and neurologic disorders, Respiratory dysfunction, Shock, Chest discomfort, Endocrine, metabolic and environmental disorders, Abdominal discomfort, Infectious disease, and Toxicologic emergencies, hazardous materials and weapons of mass destruction. Teaching stations follow the associated lectures each day.
AMLS is endorsed by the National Association of EMS Physicians (NAEMSP). It is accredited by the Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services (CECBEMS) and is recognized by the National Registry of EMTs (NREMT). Students who successfully complete the AMLS course will receive a certificate of completion that is valid for four years.
NAEMT’s Emergency Pediatric Care (EPC) course focuses on the care of sick and injured children, addressing a full spectrum of emergency illnesses, injuries and scenarios that an EMS practitioner might encounter. EPC is different from any other EMS continuing education course in that it provides an in-depth understanding of the pathophysiology of the most common pediatric emergency issues, and stresses critical thinking skills to help practitioners make the best decisions for their patients.
EPC provides a unique approach to pediatric emergency care, using the Pediatric Assessment Triangle (PAT) to help determine “How sick? How quick?” The course helps EMS practitioners rapidly and accurately assess pediatric patients to determine which situations may be life threatening and require immediate intervention, while also addressing more common but less serious complaints. In addition to providing current knowledge and training in proper treatment modalities, the course incorporates family centered care throughout all scenarios.
Students who take EPC will learn to:
- Explain the anatomical, physiological and developmental differences in children and how they affect the child’s responses to illness and injury.
- Describe how the Pediatric Assessment Triangle can act as a critical tool to guide the approach to and evolution of pediatric assessment and treatment.
- Discuss the assessment and management of newborns, infants and children suffering from: airway and breathing problems, hypoperfusion and shock, trauma, common medical problems, cardiac disease, special medical needs or child abuse and neglect.
- Describe the principles of family centered care and how they can be applied to benefit children, their families and the medical providers caring for them.
Training encompasses lectures, hands-on skills practice and small group critical thinking discussions. EPC is for all emergency medical technicians and paramedics committed to providing quality care for pediatric patients. EPC lectures and interactive sessions address the following topics: Understanding kids, Airway, breathing and oxygenation, Cardiac emergencies, Child abuse and neglect, Common medical emergencies, The importance of family, Hypoperfusion and shock, Newborn resuscitation, Pediatric trauma and Special health care needs.
Flexible course formats offered to fit the continuing education needs of all EMS practitioners include a traditional two-day face-to-face Provider Course, and a Hybrid Course that combines seven hours of online training followed by one day of on-site interactive stations. This modular course format can fulfill the pediatric clinical and educational needs of an EMS agency while minimizing budgetary and logistical impacts. Click here to view the EPC online demo.
NAEMT’s Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) is recognized around the world as the leading continuing education program for prehospital emergency trauma care.
PHTLS promotes excellence in trauma patient management through global education of all providers involved in the delivery of prehospital care. PHTLS is developed by NAEMT in cooperation with the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma.
PHTLS courses improve the quality of trauma care in your area and decrease mortality. The program is based on a prehospital trauma care philosophy, stressing the treatment of the multi-system trauma patient as a unique entity with specific needs. This may require an approach to the trauma patient that varies from traditional treatment modalities.
PHTLS promotes critical thinking as the foundation for providing quality care. It is based on the belief that, given a good fund of knowledge and key principles, EMS providers are capable of making reasoned decisions regarding patient care. The PHTLS course is continuously updated and revised to keep up with the advances in the field, ATLS Guidelines and feedback from PHTLS participants.
PHTLS programs are developed from the Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) Program, a course for physicians developed by the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma. They follow the principles of trauma care developed by the Committee on Trauma. The Committee provides the medical direction and content oversight for the PHTLS program.
Although PHTLS originated in the United States, it has evolved and now serves as an international education program available to EMS providers in 34 countries including Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bolivia, Brazil Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Denmark, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Kenya, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Oman, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Trinidad & Tobago, United Arab Emirates (UAE), and Uruguay.
