Early Management of Severe Trauma (EMST) is internationally recognised as equivalent to Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS®). The course teaches a systematic, concise approach to the care of a trauma patient, providing a safe and reliable method for immediate management of injured patients in the first one to two hours following injury.
- Demonstrate the concepts and principles of primary and secondary patient assessment;
- Establish management priorities in the initial management of a trauma patient;
- Initiate primary and secondary management of a simulated trauma patient in a timely manner;
- In a given trauma situation, demonstrate skills that are often required in the initial assessment and treatment of patients with multiple injuries.
