Stamford EMS is proud to be the only Connecticut Chapter of International Trauma Life Support.
ITLS is accepted internationally as the standard training course for pre-hospital trauma care. Not only are courses taught as a continuing education option, but they are also used as essential curricula in many paramedic, EMT and first responder training programs.
The courses are designed to compliment the Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) course delivered to surgeons and physicians. ITLS teaches a system of assessment that makes critical interventions during the primary survey to correct threats to airway, ventilations and circulation.
