Advanced Burn Life Support Course

  • 23 Feb 2017
  • 7:30 AM - 4:30 PM
  • Steven's Center, 900 E. 54th St North, Sioux Falls

The Advanced Burn Life Support (ABLS) Provider Course is an eight-hour course for physicians, nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, therapists, and paramedics. This live, hands-on is designed to provide the "how-to" of emergency care of the burn patient through the first 24 hour critical time period. Following a series of lectures, case studies are presented for group discussions. An opportunity to work with a simulated burn patient to reinforce the assessment, stabilization, and the American Burn Association transfer criteria to a Burn Center will be provided. Testing consists of a written exam and a practical assessment.

Course Objectives:

  • Evaluate a patient with a serious burn
  • Define the magnitude and severity of the injury
  • Identify and establish priorities of treatment
  • Manage the airway and support ventilation
  • Initiate and monitor fluid resuscitation
  • Apply correct methods of physiological monitoring
  • Determine which patients should be transferred to a burn center
  • Organize and conduct the inter-hospital transfer of a seriously injured burn patient.
