Pre Hospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS)

NAEMT's Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) is recognised 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. PHTLS is developed by NAEMT in cooperation with the American College of Surgeons' Committee on Trauma.

This 2-day hybrid course (1 day online, 1 day face-to-face) is designed for EMTs, paramedics, nurses, physician assistants, physicians and other out-of-hospital providers who are looking to develop and build upon foundation knowledge and skills in the management of trauma patients in the out-of-hospital setting. Upon successful completion of the course, participants receive a certificate of completion, a wallet card recognising them as PHTLS providers for 4 years.

The course utilises the internationally recognised PHTLS textbook and covers the following topics:

  • Physiology of life and death
  • Scene assessment
  • Patient assessment
  • Airway
  • Breathing, ventilation and oxygenation
  • Circulation, haemorrhage and shock
  • Patients with disabilities
  • Patient simulations
  • Vehicle extrications

This interactive course format includes underpinning lectures, multiple “hands on” skills stations and simulated trauma scenarios. This course includes the Prehospital Trauma Life Support (9th Edition) textbook, 4 year PHTLS certification, with the PHLTS international governing body, the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT).
