Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) is recognized around the world
as the leading continuing education program for prehospital emergency
trauma care. The mission of PHTLS is to promote excellence in trauma
patient management by all providers involved in the delivery of
prehospital care through global education.
PHTLS is developed by NAEMT in cooperation with the American College of
Surgeons' Committee on Trauma. The Committee provides the medical
direction and content oversight for the PHTLS program. 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
practitioners 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
Although PHTLS originated in the United States, it
has evolved and now serves as an international education program
available to EMS providers in countries around the world.
