|ASTNA and IAFCCP are pleased to offer this course to help programs meet the 9th edition CAMTS standard that requires nursing and paramedics certifications pertinent to scope of care and patient population for nurses and paramedics who have been employed for more than two years. |
This fast-paced two-day course helps to prepare clinicians for the critical care transport certification exams. Developed and presented by currently certified nurses and paramedics, the program reviews the advanced clinical and operational material that certification-eligible critical care transport providers are expected to understand. This course offers a thorough review of complex subject matter such as trauma patient management and stabilization, ground safety and transport fundamentals, FAR Part 135 survival issues and CAMTS flight safety standards, acid base balance and ventilator management, neurologic patient care, toxic exposure and environmental emergencies, obstetrical emergencies, neonatal and pediatric emergencies, burns, flight physiology, cardiovascular pathophysiology, hemodynamics, and general medical patient management. Participants will receive a comprehensive study guide and two full days of interactive presentations.
A single review course is not enough to prepare for the exam, but this course is an excellent element of an exam preparation strategy.
Due to the fast paced nature of this course, students should be familiar with critical care topics such as hemodynamic monitoring and START triage, so that these and other topics will not be new concepts. This is not an introductory course.

- Air Medical Transport Conference (AMTC)
