In November of 2019, Firetech was pleased to donate custom-built PCP/ACP Paramedic Backpack systems to the International Trauma Life Support (ITLS) for use during the Trauma Competition portion of their annual conference. Hosted in Las Vegas, 5 expert Paramedic Teams from around the world competed in challenging simulated scenarios to display and hone their skills in front of a panel of expert judges and an audience of their peers; using the ITLS assessment to triage and treat trauma patients.
International Trauma Life Support is a global force to improve trauma care worldwide, with a framework stressing rapid assessment, appropriate intervention and identification of immediate life threats. The 9th edition ITLS Provider manual reflects the latest research and best practices in trauma patient management, with a revised assessment sequence introduced in 2019 for a more organized, effective approach. Every year, ITLS organizes the International Trauma Conference to bring together EMS and trauma professionals from around the globe for education and networking.
