Overview

Introduction:

Advanced Medical Life Support (AMLS) is the gold standard of education for emergency medical assessment and treatment. Students learn to recognize and manage common medical crises through realistic case-based scenarios that challenge students to apply their knowledge to highly critical patients. The course emphasizes the use of scene size-up, patient history, interactive group discussion on potential treatment strategies, and physical exam to systematically rule out and consider possibilities and probabilities in treating patients’ medical crises. Topics covered include:
  • Respiratory disorders
  • Cardiovascular disorders
  • Shock
  • Altered mental status
  • Neurological disorders
  • Endocrine/metabolic disorders
  • Environmental emergencies
  • Infectious disease
  • Abdominal disorders

Upon successful completion of the course, students receive a certificate of completion, a wallet card recognizing them as AMLS providers for 4 years, and 16 hours of CAPCE credit.
