Remote Medical Life Support

The RMLS is a three day course that focuses on the top twenty ailments seen by remote medics, military medics or any healthcare provider working in austere locations. According to research conducted by the Department of Defence, the majority of injuries and ailments found in a deployed setting fall into non combat injury category. Therefore, Disease and Non Battle Injuries (DNBI) cause more interruption and loss of production than any other type of injuries. Additionally, civilian remote medics see that 18 of the top 20 injuries and ailments are non trauma based. This article is based on that research. Therefore, CoROM has used this research to design and launch the Remote Medical Life Support course.

The RMLS course is approved through the Wilderness Medical Society for up to 22.5 credits towards the

Fellowship of the Academy of Wilderness Medicine

The FAWM is an academic award available to all medical professionals. More information is available on the FAWM website.
