What is ATLS?
Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) is a training program for doctors in the management of acute trauma cases, developed by the American College of Surgeons.The program has been adopted worldwide in over 40 countries. Its goal is to teach a simplified and standardized approach to trauma patients. Originally designed for emergency situations where only one doctor and one nurse are present, ATLS is now widely accepted as the standard of care for initial assessment and treatment in trauma centres. The aim of the ATLS program is to treat the greatest threat to life first. Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) course teaches a systematic, concise approach to the early care of the trauma patient. The course training provides a common language that can save lives in critical situations. ATLS has become the foundation of care for injured patients by teaching a common language and a common approach.
The American College of Surgeons (ACS) and its Committee on Trauma (COT) have developed the Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) Program for doctors; a systematic, concise training for the early care of trauma patients. The ATLS Program provides participants with a safe, reliable method for immediate management of the injured patient and the basic knowledge
For doctors who infrequently treat trauma, the ATLS course provides an easily remembered method for evaluating and treating the victim of a traumatic event. For those doctors who treat traumatic disease on a frequent basis, the ATLS course provides a scaffold for evaluation, treatment, education, and quality assurance- in short, a system of trauma care that is measurable, reproducible, and comprehensive.
