Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) has formed the backbone of trauma evaluation and management. However, in recent years, literature has outpaced the ability of ATLS to remain current with best practice.  Controversies such as IV fluids, TXA, chest tube placement position, etc. have brought to the forefront the need to remain up to date with the most recent evidence and literature.

The 10th edition of ATLS has several changes in store for you based on recent literature updates. This post will provide you with several quick hits of the updates.

  1. Well done. I’ve taken ATLS for 30 yrs. Updates like this give us time-constrained ED docs what we need to provide best care for our pts. Thanks
