( sabe como surgiu o ATLS ?)
Aguardamos mais informaçoes do CENTRO DE ESTUDOS
The Advanced Trauma Life Support (
ATLS) set of protocols sets out to provide a framework for the management of the injured patient. It is intended to allow the single doctor in a rural hospital to effectively assess and manage multiple trauma.
The ATLS has its origins in the United States in 1976, when an orthopaedic surgeon, piloting a light aircraft, crashed his plane into a field in Nebraska. His wife was killed instantly and three of his four children received critical injuries.. He was appalled enough at the haphazard treatment of his children that he was to change the face of trauma care throughout the world.
Various Medical, EMS and Nursing groups within the Nebraska region began to collate a set of protocols for the management of such patients. These were then taken up and modified by the American College of Surgeons and published as the ATLS in 1980. The original publication has since been updated and revised several times, the latest being the 1997 edition.
The ideals and techniques of the ATLS have now spread worldwide, and courses in the ATLS are run regularly in many hospitals and institutions. In general, every physician and surgeon involved in the management of the injured patient should have been through an ATLS course.
The ATLS system is usually modified for patient management in trauma centres. This is because the lone doctor is replaced by a team of people - the Trauma Team, each with their own role and specific set of actions to perform. In this case the sequential nature of the ATLS is superseded by a more parallel approach. Each hospital tends to tailor both the makeup and the actions performed by this team to their own departmental capabilities.
With Trauma Care being such a rapidly advancing subject, the ATLS must be a constantly evolving system, tailored to the current thinking of the day, and it must be the responsibility of those treating the trauma patient to keep up to date with their skills and the latest recommendations as given by the ATLS.
