The ATLS concept is a strategy for the treatment of the injured patient and a teaching method. ATLS originates from the USA and it was introduced in the French speaking part of Switzerland two years ago. This article describes the principles that made ATLS successful, as well as its objectives and impact on the treatment of injured patients. As a consequence, a trend is now emerging towards a standardisation of care of the trauma patient.
