Tactical Combat Casualty Care- All Combatants 


Description: The combat casualty care experience of the 75th Ranger Regiment in Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom demonstrated that many lifesaving interventions on the battlefield can be delivered by non-medical personnel, either in support of the combat medic or in his or her absence. Both the Ranger Regiment and the Canadian Armed Forces have identified their all-combatant TCCC training programs as key elements in their unprecedented success in reducing preventable death on the battlefield.

 

In acknowledgement of this fact, military medical leaders have requested that the Joint Trauma System develop a TCCC curriculum to train non-medical military personnel. 

 

This curriculum was adapted from the TCCC for Medical Personnel curriculum (version 140602) with the intent to address all elements of TCCC that are appropriate for non-medical personnel and to eliminate those elements of care that should be performed by medics. 

 

Examples of included elements of care are such items as limb tourniquets, hemostatic dressings, nasopharyngeal airways, recognition of hemorrhagic shock, hypothermia prevention, oral antibiotics and analgesics, and eye shields. These topics are discussed in lay language insofar as possible.

Length: 8-16 hours

Target Audience: Non Medical Military Members, Non Medical Tactical Team Members

Current TCCC-AC guidelines can be found here
