Taught across the globe since 1999, AMLS: Advanced Medical Life Support was the first EMS education program that fully addressed how to best manage patients in medical crises. Created by the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) and endorsed by the National Association of EMS Physicians (NAEMSP), AMLS emphasizes the use of the AMLS Assessment Pathway. This essential assessment tool empowers prehospital practitioners to rapidly diagnose medical patients and initiate effective management in the field. AMLS is the only textbook approved for use in NAEMT’s Advanced Medical Life Support course.
