Advanced Burn Life Support - ABLS


ABLS Provider Course

The (ABLS) Provider Course is an eight-hour course for physicians, nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, therapists, and paramedics. 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. An opportunity to work with a simulated burn patient to reinforce the assessment, stabilization, and the American Burn Association transfer criteria to a Burn Center will be provided. Testing consists of a written exam and a practical assessment.


Course Objectives

Evaluate a patient with serious burns, define magnitude and severity of burn 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 and organize and conduct inter-hospital transfer of a seriously injured burn patient.
