Course offered virtually and in person.

Advanced Medical Life Support (AMLS) remains the gold standard of education for emergency medical assessment and treatment. Endorsed by the National Association of EMS Physicians, AMLS emphasizes the use of the AMLS Assessment Pathway, a systematic tool for assessing and managing common medical conditions with urgent accuracy.

In the third edition of AMLS, students learn to recognize and manage common medical crises through realistic case-based scenarios that challenge students to apply their knowledge to highly critical patients.  The course emphasizes the use of scene size-up, first impression, history, interactive group discussion on differential diagnosis and potential treatment strategies, and physical exam to systematically rule out and consider possibilities and probabilities in treating patients’ medical crises. The third edition AMLS library of patient simulations offers students an opportunity to apply critical thinking skills to a variety of patient presentations. Additional features include patient simulation monitor images and ECGs provided by iSimulate, to enhance students’ experience.

The course utilizes the AMLS textbook and course manual, and covers the following topics:

  • Respiratory disorders
  • Cardiovascular disorders
  • Shock
  • Sepsis
  • Neurological disorders
  • Endocrine/Metabolic disorders
  • Environmental emergencies
  • Infectious disease
  • Abdominal disorders
  • Toxicological emergencies
  • Exposure to hazardous materials

AMLS is appropriate for EMTs, paramedics, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurse anesthetists and physicians. AMLS is accredited by CAPCE and recognized by NREMT.

Provider Course: This 8-hour classroom course is appropriate for EMTs, paramedics, emergency medical responders, nurses, physician assistants, and physicians. Students who successfully complete the course receive a certificate, a card recognizing them as a GEMS provider for 4 years, and 8 hours of CAPCE credit.

Each year in the United States, approximately 40 percent of all emergency medical services (EMS) calls are for geriatric patients experiencing acute medical disorders, trauma, or exacerbations of chronic disease, and future EMS calls for this population will sharply rise. In fact, the number of people 80 years of age and older globally is expected to triple by 2050. The National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians' Geriatric Education for EMS Course Manual prepares prehospital practitioners to respond to, assess, and care for this fast-growing patient population.

Geriatric Education for Emergency Medical Services, Third Edition is an engaging educational resource that practitioners can consult after the course to help them provide the best care for older adults in every community.

A Comprehensive Approach to Geriatric Care

The GEMS program helps EMS practitioners learn to conduct a comprehensive assessment of geriatric patients. Because the aging process affects all body systems, NAEMT's course provides an overview of changes that occur as people age and describes how those changes can impact patient presentation.

Completing a full assessment that integrates and responds to differences in geriatric pathophysiology is critical to recognizing and responding quickly and effectively to the critically ill or injured older adult. Additionally, incorporating the GEMS Diamond (Geriatric, Environmental, Medical, and Social assessments) can help practitioners formulate a holistic diagnostic and treatment approach.
