Advanced Medical Life SupportThe Advanced Medical Life Support (AMLS) course is sponsored by the National Association of EMTs (NAEMT) and endorsed by the National Association of EMS Physicians (NAEMSP). It is the first course that addresses the most common medical complaints and offers a "think outside the box" method of assessing and managing a patient in medical crisis. The course emphasizes using the scene size-up, history and physical exam to systematically rule-out and rule-in possibilities and probabilities of their medical problem. This course offers the opportunity to be in an assessment-based approach and progress to a diagnostic-based approach to develop a specific treatment plan for a specific medical condition; resulting in a differential diagnosis.
Course participants encompass all levels of EMS professionals, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, certified nurse anesthetists and physicians. This diversity enhances the team approach to patient care.

The interactive/case based lectures include the following topics: Patient Assessment, Airway Management, Assessment of the Shock Patient, Dyspnea/Respiratory Failure, Chest Pain, altered Mental Status, and Abdominal Pain.
