Each year more than 700,000 people in the United States are treated for a burn injury. The quality of care during the first hours after a burn injury has a major impact on the long-term outcome. Yet most initial burn care is provided outside of the burn center environment. The Advanced Burn Life Support (ABLS) Provider Course is an eight-hour course designed to provide physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physicians assistants, EMT's and paramedics with the ability to assess and stabilize patients with serious burns during the first critical hours following injury and to identify those patients requiring transfer to a burn center. The course is not designed to teach comprehensive burn care, but rather to provide information that will enable those who only rarely treat burn patients to provide the care needed by a burn patient in the first 24 hours after injury.
