TRAUMA FIRST RESPONDER
Trauma First Response Course
The Trauma First Response course is a one-day continuing education course that teaches the principles of Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) to non-Emergency Medical Systems practitioners, including first responders, outdoor adventure specialists, police officers, firefighters, rescue personnel and safety officers. It helps them prepare to care for trauma patients while serving as part of a transport team or awaiting a transport provider.
The course serves up core PHTLS content to those who haven’t had Emergency Medical Technician or advanced prehospital training. The lectures and practical stations are designed for the type of care first responders can render while awaiting patient transport or when assisting paramedics and EMTs at a trauma scene.
Topics would include;
Circulation and bleeding management
Monitoring of casualties
Fractures and Spinal management
We are accredited by NAEMT and American College of Surgeons and Tan Tock Seng Hospital to provide the course.
