Advanced Burn Life Support Course

Format: Resident, Exportable

The primary purpose of this course is to provide health care professionals with the ability to access and stabilize patients with serious burns during the first critical hours following injury. Additionally, they will be able to identify those patients requiring transfer to a burn center.

DMRTI, located at Joint Base San Antonio, Fort Sam Houston, Texas, provides a one-day ABLS Course in remote locations for active duty and reserve personnel. The intent of the ABLS Course is to enable the participant to define the magnitude and severity of injury, identify and establish priorities of treatment, apply correct methods of physiological monitoring, and to determine the appropriate guidelines for transfer.

During the didactic portion of the course, the basic concepts of assessing the magnitude and severity of the injury and establishing a management treatment plan with correct physiological monitoring are presented. Students participate in case study discussions and then work with simulated burn patients to reinforce these principles as well as patient transfer guidelines.

This course is intended for Medical Corps, Nurse Corps, Nurse Practitioner, Physician Assistant, or Registered Nurse in one of the three respective services (Army, Navy, and Air Force).
