The ABLS Provider Course is an 8-hour course for physicians, nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, therapists, firefighters, paramedics, and EMTs. This live, hands-on course is designed to provide the “how-to” of emergency care of the burn patient through the first 24-hour critical time period.
Following a series of lectures, case studies are presented for group discussions. The course includes an opportunity to work with a simulated burn patient to reinforce the assessment, stabilization, and the American Burn Association (ABA) transfer criteria to a Burn Center. Testing consists of a written exam and a practical assessment.
At the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- evaluate a patient with a serious burn;
- define the magnitude and severity of the injury;
- identify and establish priorities of treatment;
- manage the airway and support ventilation;
- initiate and monitor fluid resuscitation;
- apply correct methods of physiological monitoring;
- determine which patients should be transferred to a burn center;
- organize and conduct the inter-hospital transfer of a seriously injured burn patient.
