Lethics Casualty care

  1. 1. Lethics LLC Tactical Combat Casualty Care All operators should know and understand first aid, but they must be able to think quickly on when to engage the enemy on the battlefield and also be able to provide care while under fire. The TCCC qualification is something that must be implemented for ensuring operators who deploy in the future have this as part of their skill set.
  2. 2. Lethics Combat Care Will Cover • Tactical Combat Casualty Care • Tactical Combat Casualty Care Procedures • Triage • Evacuation • 9-Line • First Aid and Litter Combat Casualty Kit
  3. 3. Lethics Combat Care Goals An important guiding principle of CC is performing the correct intervention at the correct time in the continuum of field care. To this end, CC is structured to meet three important goals: • Treat the casualty. • Prevent additional casualties. • Complete the operation.

Stages Of Combat Casualty Care Care Under Fire Tactical Field Care Tactical Evacuation Care • Still Under Fire • Risk Of Additional Casualties Is High • Medical Equipment Is Limited • Care Rendered When No Longer Under Effective Fire • Medical Equipment Is Still Limited • Time To Evacuation Is Evaluated / Min. – Hours? • Care Given Once Casualty Has Been Picked Up • Medical Equipment And Personnel That Have Been Staged On Mode Of Pick Up Should Be Available
  5. 5. Care Under Fire This is a very complicated phase because of a few tactical factors. 1. Medical equipment is limited to personal supplies 2. Limited assistance will be available. The rest of the units operators will be engaging the enemy. 3. The tactical situation will limit the scope of the examination. 4. Low light or smoke may create limited visual acuity while treating the casualty.

  15. 15. Basic Management Plan for Care Under Fire 1. Return fire and take cover. 2. Direct or expect casualty to remain engaged as a combatant if appropriate. 3. Direct casualty to move to cover and apply self-aid if able. 4. Try to keep the casualty from sustaining additional wounds. 5. Airway management is generally best deferred until the tactical field care phase. 6. Stop life-threatening external hemorrhage if tactically feasible: • Direct casualty to control hemorrhage by self-aid if able. • Use a tourniquet for hemorrhage that is anatomically amenable to tourniquet application. • Apply the tourniquet proximal to the bleeding site, over the uniform, tighten, and move the casualty to cover
  16. 16. After Action and Review • Final grades, counseling, and evaluation easements are given to the students. • Students Evaluate course. • Team Medical SOPs are constructed • Med Kits and blow out kits are standardized.
