About This Course:
Tactical Medicine is based off the Department of Defense’s Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC). This is a demanding level 2 course where students will learn skills and knowledge to help prevent the loss of life while in a high threat environment. The skills learned will be equally applicable for self-aid, or in aid of others. This is not a first aid course. This course deals with life threatening injuries due to traumatic injuries. Students will learn to operate in austere conditions, with limited equipment and limited access to higher trained medical personnel. This course will also deal with situations where transport to hospitals may be delayed.
This course will go deep into the use of the IFAK equipment. Specials skills will include medical assessment, commercial and improvised Tourniquet application in a timely manner, wound packing including the use of pressure points, NPA use and insertion, and patient movement including drags and carries. Students will learn to deal with stress inducing situations including missing or broken equipment and combative patients.
This course is a mix of lecture and field drills. This course is moderately physical in nature, and students should expect plenty of movement including lifting and running.
This course is NOT a invasive procedures course. Students will not learn surgical airways, meds/fluids, or needle decompressions.
A practice medical kit, including a CAT tourniquet, cravat, NPA, Pressure Dressing, tape, and gauze. If students do not have a kit, limited components are available to borrow, or a practice kit can be purchased for $50 (contact us after registration)
