Endorsed by the National Association of EMS Physicians, the dynamic AMLS course addresses how to use critical thinking to fully assess and manage the most common medical crises in adult patients, offering a “think outside the box” methodology and emphasizing scene size-up, history, interactive group discussion on potential treatment strategies, and physical exam to systematically rule out and consider differential diagnoses. The updated course materials and textbook focus on a dynamic rather than a linear approach to assessment and management using the AMLS Assessment Pathway algorithm and other expanded content. Scenario-based, interactive lecture presentations and practical stations offer the opportunity for all levels of healthcare providers to review the pathophysiology, assessment and management skills of various medical emergencies. Successful course completion requires competency on a written and practical evaluation.
