The PreHospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) course promotes excellence in trauma patient management through global education of all providers involved in the delivery of pre-hospital care. PHTLS is developed by the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians in cooperation with the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma.
PHTLS courses improve the quality of trauma care in an area and decrease mortality. The program is based on a pre-hospital 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.
