The Advanced Burn Life Support (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: 1. Evaluate a patient with a serious burn; 2. Define the magnitude and severity of the injury; 3. Identify and establish priorities of treatment 4. Manage the airway and support ventilation; 5. Initiate and monitor fluid resuscitation; 6. Apply correct methods of physiological monitoring; 7. Determine which patients should be transferred to a burn center; and 8. Organize and conduct the inter-hospital transfer of a seriously injured patient.
