Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS)

Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS)

The world’s premier pre-hospital trauma education developed in cooperation with the American College of Surgeons to promote critical thinking in addressing multi-system trauma and provide the latest evidence-based treatment practices.

Class Schedule

28-29 February 2020

Two days, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

About the Course

The program is based on a prehospital 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. PHTLS promotes critical thinking as the foundation for providing quality care. It is based on the belief that, given a good fund of knowledge and key principles, EMS practitioners are capable of making reasoned decisions regarding patient care. The PHTLS course is continuously updated and revised to keep up with the advances in the field, ATLS Guidelines and feedback from PHTLS participants.

This class will cover the following concepts:

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

Instruction is a total of 16 hours, spread across two days. Upon successful completion of the course, students receive a certificate of completion, a wallet card recognizing them as PHTLS providers for 4 years, and 16 hours of CAPCE credit.

COVID-19 ANNOUNCEMENT - KCI EMT TRAINING

We’re facing an unprecedented time. Our families, businesses and communities are all being affected by the coronavirus. Together, we will get through this and I wanted to update you on the measures that KCI EMT Training is taking to ensure continuity of EMS Training service while protecting our customers, partners and team members as COVID-19 runs its course.

KCI EMT Trainings operations and services will not be impacted by COVID-19. As a precautionary measure, all KCI EMT Training team instructors have transitioned to working from home through at least the end of April. Our teams are being asked to work with students through digital channels as much as possible. This means we’re adhering to cancellations and postponing in-person classroom trainings and all skills practices, until we can assure the health and safety of our students, staff and community. Our workforce is already very diverse geographically, well-equipped and digital. Expect no disruption in service.
