   EMS 245 Prehospital Trauma Management/PHTLS

Catalog Description:    Designed to instruct prehospital care personnel in the
                        critical skills necessary to manage the trauma victim

                        integration of local Emergency Medical Services
                        (EMS) standard operating procedures and/or the
                        Incident Command System (ICS) to selected victim
                        3. (Analysis Level) Determine care management of
                        trauma victim, including initial assessment, vital signs,
