Advanced Medical Life Support (AMLS) is an education program sponsored by the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) and endorsed by the National Association of EMS Physicians (NAEMSP). AMLS is accredited by the Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services (CECBEMS) and is recognized by the National Registry of EMTs (NREMT).
This program is for all levels of healthcare practitioners committed to providing quality care for patients in medical crisis. AMLS is the first course that offers a “think-outside-the-box” method of assessing and managing a patient in medical crisis.
AMLS emphasizes the ability to size up a scene and offers the opportunity for interactive group discussions on potential treatment strategies, history, and probabilities in diagnosing a patient’s medical problem. AMLS implements an initial assessment-based approach that progresses to a diagnostic-based approach to develop a treatment plan for a specific medical condition.
AMLS consists of interactive lectures, teaching and evaluation stations. The interactive/case based lectures include the following topics: Patient Assessment, Airway Management, Assessment of the Shock Patient, Dyspnea/Respiratory Failure, Chest Pain, Altered Mental Status, and Abdominal Pain. Teaching stations follow the associated lectures each day.
Students who successfully complete the AMLS course receive a certificate of completion that is valid for four years.
