Emergency Neurological Life Support (ENLS) Course
The Emergency Neurological Life Support (ENLS) course is designed to help healthcare professionals improve patient care and outcomes during the critical first hours of a patient’s neurological emergency. Now in its fifth version, ENLS demonstrates a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach and provides a consistent set of protocols, practical checklists, decision points, and suggested communication to use during patient management.
After completing each ENLS topic, the learner will be able to:
- Recognize the signs and symptoms of the neurological emergency,
- Perform a focused neurological exam and calculate the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) score,
- Rapidly implement the recommended management protocol, and
- Effectively communicate pertinent medical information to the accepting health care provider.
Each topic also has specific learning objectives unique to the topic that students will master.
This course consists of a two days face-to-face attendance, which will take place in Al Awasi International Training Centre. In addition to online course that can be accessed for 2 years.
ENLS consists of 14 protocols. Each protocol was designed and written by neurointensivists and emergency medicine physicians. These protocols are designed to provide the same advice an expert in neurocritical care would provide if you called the physician for a consult and asked, “What should I do in the first hour to best help this patient and hand them off to you?”
