Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS)



ATLS® Program Overview

The Advanced Trauma Life Support® (ATLS®) program can teach you a systematic, concise approach to the care of a trauma patient. ATLS was developed by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Committee on Trauma (COT) and was first introduced in the US and abroad in 1980.  Its courses provide you with a safe and reliable method for immediate management of injured patients.  The course teaches you how to assess a patient’s condition, resuscitate and stabilize him or her, and determine if his or her needs exceed a facility’s capacity. Inter hospital transfer and assurance of optimal patient care during transfer is also covered.  An ATLS course provides an easy method to remember for evaluation and treatment of a trauma victim.
