Building Upward: BLS Pharmacology Lesson 1 – Albuterol

Length: 1.5 hours

CEUs: 0.15

Description: The Building Upward Series is designed for the EMT who would like to review their basic skills and learn a little more than what was offered in the standard original course. If you are an EMT who is looking for a challenge and would like to know what questions to ask, this series is for you. Most BLS providers find the world of pharmacology to be one of the more confusing topics in prehospital medicine. This is the first lesson in a series that gives the BLS provider an opportunity to relate some advanced concepts to their practice as BLS providers. We begin with the commonly used medication albuterol sulfate and discuss many fundamental concepts that every provider should know when administering medications in a prehospital setting. Final Exam: This multiple choice exam is designed to test your knowledge of the material you just reviewed. You have two attempts to gain a 75% or higher on this exam. Please take your time and answer each question carefully.

Description: NAEMT’s Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) is recognized around the world as the leading continuing education program for prehospital emergency trauma care. The mission of PHTLS is to promote excellence in trauma patient management by all providers involved in the delivery of prehospital care. PHTLS is developed by NAEMT in cooperation with the American College of Surgeons’ Committee on Trauma. The Committee provides the medical direction and content oversight for the PHTLS program.

PHTLS courses improve the quality of trauma care and decrease mortality. The program is based on a philosophy stressing the treatment of the multi-system trauma patient as a unique entity with specific needs. PHTLS promotes critical thinking as the foundation for providing quality care. It is based on the belief that, given a good fund of knowledge and key principles, EMS practitioners are capable of making reasoned decisions regarding patient care. The course utilizes the internationally recognized PHTLS textbook and covers the following topics:

Physiology of life and death

Scene assessment

Patient assessment

Airway

Breathing, ventilation and oxygenation

Circulation, hemorrhage and shock

Patients with disabilities

Patient simulations

PHTLS is the global gold standard in prehospital trauma education and is taught in 64 countries. PHTLS is appropriate for EMTs, paramedics, nurses, physician assistants, physicians, and other prehospital providers. PHTLS is accredited by CAPCE and recognized by NREMT.
