Pre-Hospital Paediatric Life Support (PHPLS) Course is organized by Advanced Life Support Group (ALSG) and will be held from Feb 22 - 23, 2020 at MERAS Health and Conference Centre, Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom.
The PHPLS course is a 3-day course comprising 1-day of pre-course on-line learning (VLE) and a 2-day face-to-face course. Some courses run alongside APLS courses where the PHPLS content is identical to the standalone PHPLS courses.
The PHPLS course provides the knowledge and practical procedures necessary for effective treatment of childhood emergencies prior to hospital admission: major incident injury; life-threatening acute illnesses to which children with other underlying chronic diseases may be prone ; he child suffering from the progressive effects of trauma. Prompt recognition and immediate effective treatment improves the life chances for these children. Furthermore, the seriously ill and or injured child needs to be treated as an individual and there are four key differences that determine treatment: weight; anatomy; physiology and psychology.
The course focuses on how to recognise and effectively manage the treatment of a seriously ill and or injured child, using a structured approach; how to triage, providing appropriate life saving treatment; how to assess the most appropriate form of transportation; and teaches the ASHICE format for pre-hospital communication: age, sex, history, injuries/illness, current condition, expected time and mode of arrival at an ECD.
