PHTLS®

The Golden Hour starts at the scene of the accident; therefore the appropriate care should start there too. For that reason PHTLS®

Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support®

The Golden Hour starts at the scene of the accident; therefore the appropriate care should start there too. For that reason PHTLS® was created by the NAEMT. It is an international course recognized worldwide as the “leading continuing education program for pre-hospital emergency trauma care”.

Decreasing Mortality

PHTLS® improves the quality of trauma care provided in the area and decreases mortality. The program is a holistic approach to the complete and safe care of a trauma patient.

This approach requires a special training that varies from the traditional treatment modality and which promotes “critical thinking” as the foundation for providing quality care.

Disaster Response

Roads For Life and BLC Bank are partners in promoting and sponsoring the certification program addressed to the Lebanese Red Cross and Civil Defense paramedics. A commitment was done for the coming 3 years to sponsor the training of 300 mission leaders in the Lebanese Red Cross – Emergency Medical Service.

This course started in February 2013. The PHTLS® program was promulgated in Lebanon by the Lebanese Red Cross under the governance of AUBMC to the exclusive provider of PHTLS®.

Although the course is now being offered in majority to the Lebanese Red Cross – Emergency Medical Service mission leaders, it is also open for the training of MDs, nurses, and paramedics.

Through this Program we will be able to open new horizons and start training the military team and police through special courses derived from PHTLS® such as the TCCC® (Tactical Combat Casualty Care).

A total of 240 Lebanese Red Cross paramedics dispatched all over Lebanon completed their training, sponsored by Roads for Life and BLC Bank since the year 2013.
