Advanced Medical Life Support (AMLS) remains the gold standard of education for emergency medical assessment and treatment. Endorsed by the National Association of EMS Physicians, AMLS emphasizes the use of the AMLS Assessment Pathway, a systematic tool for assessing and managing common medical conditions with urgent accuracy.

In the third edition of AMLS, students learn to recognize and manage common medical crises through realistic case-based scenarios that challenge students to apply their knowledge to highly critical patients.  The course emphasizes the use of scene size-up, first impression, history, interactive group discussion on differential diagnosis and potential treatment strategies, and physical exam to systematically rule out and consider possibilities and probabilities in treating patients’ medical crises. The third edition AMLS library of patient simulations offers students an opportunity to apply critical thinking skills to a variety of patient presentations. Additional features include patient simulation monitor images and ECGs provided by iSimulate, to enhance students’ experience.

Prerequisites

While the course is designed for prehospital and emergency medical providers at all levels, the course is challenging and successful completion will be difficult if you lack actual patient care experience.

Required Materials

The AMLS textbook for the course must be purchased before the start of the course in order to complete the required readings due by the first day of class.

You can buy the new Third Edition textbook from Jones & Bartlett Learning. We do not have textbooks available on-site.
