Advanced Hazmat Life Support

This internationally recognized Advanced Hazmat Life Support Provider program is a course developed by the Arizona Emergency Medicine Research Center (AEMRC) at the University of Arizona Health Sciences Center and the American Academy of Clinical Toxicology.

The Advanced Hazmat Life Support (AHLS) Provider Course is the premier, international course that teaches healthcare professionals to medically manage patients exposed to hazardous materials, including chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear agents. The 16-hour, 2-day AHLS Provider Course covers hazardous materials including insecticides, corrosives, irritant gases, asphyxiants, hydrocarbons and substituted hydrocarbons. Specific antidotes and their indications, contraindications, dosing and route are also included.

Due to the elimination of funding, the AHLS course offered by the Oklahoma Poison Center has been discontinued.
