This specialized two-day trauma assessment and treatment course targeted at first responders, EMS Personnel and hospital staff that deal with trauma patients. Participants will be given didactic knowledge and hands on experience with oxygen delivery devices, basic airway devices, spinal immobilization equipment, extrication devices and patient assessment tools.

International Trauma Life Support (ITLS) courses give the student the knowledge and hands-on skills to take better care of trauma patients. ITLS stresses rapid assessment, appropriate intervention and identification of immediate life threats. The ITLS framework for rapid, appropriate and effective trauma care is a global standard that works in any situation.

ITLS courses combine classroom learning, hands-on skills stations, and assessment stations that put learning to work in simulated trauma scenarios. Each ITLS course includes a, evidence-based course manual with in-depth content written and edited by trauma care experts based on current research. ITLS courses are designed, managed and delivered by course directors, coordinators and instructors experienced in EMS, pre-hospital care and the ITLS approach.
