Who can take this course?
This course is “Open Enrollment” Basic Handgun & M4/ Carbine skills are necessary. No previous medical training or medical experience is necessary to take this course.
This TCCC course is the companion course to PHTLS for the military and for the warriors who are preparing to be deployed in support of combat operations. Casualty care in this setting must be the best possible combination of good medicine and good small-unit tactics. The critical thinking skills of the individual as both a tactical operator and a medical provider must be brought into play. The specifics of casualty care in the tactical setting will depend on the tactical situation, the injuries sustained by the casualty, and the management of the trauma patient.
Within this educational program is emphasis on the need to rely on critical thinking and a strong base of knowledge to modify the care of the patient as required by the situation, the condition of the patient, the knowledge and skill of the provider, and the resources available at the time the care is needed. This is otherwise known the “Art and Science” of trauma care.
In the combat environment, the situation is very different from the civilian environment, the knowledge and skills of the first responder (who may not be a medic or a corpsman), and the medical equipment at hand dictate the specifics of casualty care in this setting. This is in contrast to an Emergency Department setting where the patient IS the mission; on the battlefield care of casualties sustained is only PART of the mission. TCCC recognizes this fact and structures its guidelines to accomplish three primary goals:
1) Treat the casualty
2) Prevent additional casualties
3) Complete the mission
In the combat environment many challenges exist that will affect patient care. Although the principles of trauma care must be carried out, the preferences used may change significantly. The TCCC program was developed to customize the principles of good trauma care for successful use on the battlefield.
We will use the:
M =Massive Bleeding
H =Hypothermia/Head Injury
Guidelines and focus on the following;
CARE UNDER FIRE
TACTICAL FIELD CARE
CASEVAC/ MEDIVAC/ TACEVAC (Helicopter)
