Advanced Medical Life Support (AMLS) ist das führende Konzept für die akutmedizinische Versorgung von internistischen und neurologischen Patienten. Es richtet sich an alle an der Behandlung von nicht-traumatologischen Notfällen beteiligten Berufsgruppen - vom Rettungssanitäter, Notfallsanitäter und Notarzt am Notfallort bis zum Pflegepersonal und Arzt in der Notaufnahme. Ziel ist eine rasche Einschätzung des Patienten bezüglich Behandlungsdringlichkeit und sofort notwendigen Maßnahmen („treat first what kills first"). Außerdem werden Differentialdiagnosen strukturiert erarbeitet, um die beste Therapie und geeignete Zieleinrichtung auszuwählen. Was bietet die zweite deutsche Auflage? Patientenversorgung „state-of-the-art": Die aktuelle AMLS-Edition berücksichtigt alle relevanten gültigen Leitlinien und neuesten Forschungsergebnisse. Sowohl Berufsanfänger als auch „alte Hasen" aller Berufsgruppen profitieren von der Struktur und Aktualität des Konzepts und dieses Buches. Wiederholungsfragen sowie Zusammenfassungen der Kapitel und Putting It All Together-Abschnitte untermauern Schlüsselkonzepte und verknüpfen Informationen, um die Leser und Kursteilnehmer beim Lernen zu unterstützen. Szenarien bieten einen realistischen Kontext, um das Erlernte anzuwenden und anhand eines Lösungsvorschlags seinen Wissenszuwachs zu überprüfen. Warum AMLS? Der Vorteil des Konzepts ist die klare Struktur in der Patientenbeurteilung. Sie hilft, in schwierigen Notfallsituationen einen kühlen Kopf zu bewahren oder auch bei zunächst unklarem Beschwerdebild zu einer Verdachtsdiagnose zu finden und entsprechende Maßnahmen einzuleiten. Gleichzeitig ist es ein klarer Pluspunkt, wenn alle Mitglieder des Behandlungsteams das Konzept mit seinen Abläufen kennen und so bei der Patientenversorgung an einem Strang ziehen. Das AMLS-Konzept schließt die Lücke zwischen Konzepten zur Versorgung von Trauma- und pädiatrischen Patienten sowie Reanimationskursen. Warum dieses Buch? Dieses Buch ist das offizielle Kursbuch zu den AMLSKursen, welche 1999 von der National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) zusammen mit der National Association of EMS Physicians (NAEMSP) entwickelt wurden. Mittlerweile sind AMLS-Kurse weltweit etabliert, seit 2010 auch in Deutschland mit einer kontinuierlich wachsenden Zahl von Anwendern.

Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS), 5th Edition, Military Version is a unique, continuing education program that directly addresses trauma issues in the prehospital environment. Following the publication cycle of ATLS (Advanced Trauma Life Support) by the Committee on Trauma of the American College of Surgeons, the PHTLS program is designed to enhance and increase knowledge and skill in delivering trauma care. The PHTLS textbook is the required book for the PHTLS course, and is also ideal for use as the trauma component of a paramedic course or as a general reference book on trauma assessment and management. Based on Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS), 5th Edition, this military version combines both basic and advanced trauma concepts and skills in one definitive resource and features an entirely new chapter on evidence-based guidelines for military medicine, developed by the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care. Instructor resources available; contact your sales representative for details.

Content includes both basic and advanced training and has been updated to reflect the current ATLS guidelines - complete with extensive references and suggested readings. A consistent approach for every body region makes the book easy to follow and includes content on anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, and assessment and management.

NAEMT: Airway, thoracic, and spinal skills are presented in a heavily illustrated, step-by-step format as Specific Skills. The Airway Management and Ventilation chapter includes information on face-to-face intubation, an alternate method of intubating trauma patients. It also defines the difference between pharmacologically assisted intubation and rapid sequence intubation. Includes information on tools such as pulse oximetry and capnography. A difficult airway algorithm aids students in determining which airway adjuncts are appropriate and when they should be used. Includes new photographs geared specifically to the military. Describes differences in procedures in a non-combat situation and those in a combat situation. The Military Medicine chapter, written by the military, provides special trauma considerations and protocols. Military procedures are also found throughout the text, where applicable.
