Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Each new print copy of PHTLS: Prehospital Trauma Life Support, Eighth Edition also includes an access code that unlocks a complete eBook and skills videos. PHTLS: Prehospital Trauma Life Support, Eighth Edition is the premier and proven global prehospital trauma education program from NAEMT. For three decades, PHTLS has improved the quality of trauma patient care and has saved lives. The eighth edition of PHTLS continues the PHTLS mission to promote excellence in trauma patient management by all providers involved in the delivery of prehospital care through global education. This legendary program was first developed by the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) in the early 1980s in cooperation with the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma (ACS-COT). Its medical content is continuously revised and updated to reflect current, state-of-the-art knowledge and practice. PHTLS promotes critical thinking as the foundation for providing quality care. It is based on the belief that EMS practitioners make the best decisions on behalf of their patients when given a good foundation of knowledge and key principles. The eighth edition of PHTLS features a new chapter, Physiology of Life and Death. This chapter creates a solid understanding of the physiology of life and pathophysiology that can lead to death. This understanding is essential for the prehospital care provider if abnormalities are to be found and addressed quickly in the trauma patient. Clear Approach to Assessing a Trauma Patient In the field, seconds count. PHTLS teaches and reinforces the principles of rapidly assessing a trauma patient using an orderly approach, immediately treating life-threatening problems as they are identified, and minimizing any delays in initiating transport to an appropriate destination. Dynamic Technology Solutions World-class content joins instructionally sound design in a user-friendly online interface to give instructors and students a truly interactive and engaging learning experience with: • eBook • Video Demonstrations of Critical Skills • Interactive Lectures
