Current Guidelines For Advanced Trauma Life Support In The Emergency Department (Trauma CME)

July 2011

Abstract

In this issue of EM Practice Guidelines Update, we review the changes and additions to the Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) guidelines leading to the 8th Edition. Since its inception in 1978, ATLS has improved trauma care internationally by serving as a standard for focused trauma assessment and management as well as a language that allows physicians in emergency departments (EDs) and on trauma teams to work synchronously and provide consistent trauma management.
