Advanced Medical Life Support – 16 hours. Provides 16 hours NREMT CEUs
Advanced Medical Life Support (AMLS) remains the gold standard of
education for emergency medical assessment and treatment. Endorsed by
the National Association of EMS Physicians, AMLS emphasizes the use of
the AMLS Assessment Pathway, a systematic tool for assessing and
managing common medical conditions with urgent accuracy.
In the third edition of AMLS, 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, first impression, history,
interactive group discussion on differential diagnosis and potential
treatment strategies, and physical exam to systematically rule out and
consider possibilities and probabilities in treating patients’ medical crises.
The third edition AMLS library of patient simulations offers students an
opportunity to apply critical thinking skills to a variety of patient
presentations. Additional features include patient simulation monitor images
and ECGs provided by iSimulate, to enhance students’ experience.
While the course is designed for prehospital and emergency medical
providers at all levels, the course is challenging and successful completion
will be difficult if you lack actual patient care experience.
The AMLS textbook for the course must be purchased before the start of
the course in order to complete the required readings due by the first day of
