As the required textbook for NAEMT's Trauma First Response course, PHTLS Trauma First Response provides comprehensive, evidence-based trauma guidelines to help you confidently manage trauma patients in the critical moments before EMS arrives on the scene. Culled from the most current, evidence-based trauma treatment guidelines published in NAEMT's internationally renowned Pre-hospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS), 7th Edition, this proven approach to trauma management can assist you in providing the best pre-EMS trauma treatment to reduce patient morbidity and mortality.

  • Provides CEUs for First Responders; proceeds from the course go to the NAEMT and are used to support the EMS profession; helps you improve the quality of care (based on available research); can be incorporated into initial training or as a stand-alone continuing education course; promotes critical thinking as the foundation for providing quality care.
  • Trauma First Response is a one-day continuing education course that teaches the principles of the world-renowned Pre-hospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) course to those who haven't had advanced pre-hospital training, including first responders, police officers, firefighters, rescue personnel and safety officers. The lectures and practical stations are designed for the type of care non-EMS first responders can render to trauma patients while awaiting EMS patient transport or when assisting paramedics and EMTs at a trauma scene.
