Advanced Medical Life Support

Welcome to Advanced Medical Life Support

 Advanced Medical Life Support course fully addresses how to best assess and manage the most common medical crises and the rapidly deteriorating patient by offering the clinician a “think outside the box” methodology by using core assessment strategies and treatment algorithms.

The course emphasizes a rapid scene size up, recognizing a Sick/Not Sick patient, history and physical exam, along with interactive group discussion on differentials and potential treatment strategies. The course offers an assessment-based approach care plan and progresses to a diagnostic-based approach to quickly develop a treatment plan for patient care.
