ATLS EVOLVING

We’ve often critisised ATLS. Part of it because many healthcare workers take the ATLS manual as divine law. And many of them don’t keep up with the changes in the new ATLS editions – so they cling to even older dogma. Pretty much everybody has stopped giving 2 L of saline, but many will still say things like the digital rectal exam is manadatory in ATLS. It isn’t. Or a hard cervical collar is mandatory. It isn’t.
