Welcome to the George E Moerkirk Emergency Medicine Institute

The ABLS course is an eight-hour course for physicians, nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, paramedics and EMTs. The course provides guidelines in the assessment and management of a burn patient during the first 24 hours post injury.

The ABLS Provider Course presents a series of didactic presentations on initial assessment and management, airway management, smoke inhalation injury, shock and fluid resuscitation, wound management, electric injury, chemical injury, the pediatric patient, transfer and transport principles, and disaster management and the ABA plan.

Participants will apply these concepts during case study discussions. Additionally, participants will work with simulated burn patients to reinforce the assessment, stabilization and the American Burn Association transfer criteria to a Burn Center.
