This course will introduce and drill the basic skills necessary to manage life-threatening trauma in a tactical environment.

In addition to Basic Life Support ( BLS) skills, the training will emphasize self care and care under fire.

Course topics will include:

How care under fire differs from standard first aid
Priorities of action in a combative environment
The purpose built medical kit vs. field expedient gear
Communication and task delegation
Scene security
Self care
Body substance isolation
Rapid trauma assessment
Treatment priorities
Controlling life-threatening bleeding
Hemostatic agents (Quikclot, Celox, etc.)
Tourniquets: when and how
Airway management
Managing penetrating chest wounds
CPR –When and when not
Triage in a multi-victim situation
When and how to move a patient

Students will learn to quickly and efficiently apply common pressure bandages and tourniquets to themselves and others.

Participants will practice all skills “hands-on” with training partners and manikins.

Prerequisites: None.
All students should wear comfortable clothing and shoes suitable for moderate physical activity.
It is highly likely that participants will get blood simulant on clothing and gear.

Course fee (includes lunch and training materials): $125

If I didn't have another training event planned, I'd be there.

To those who are on the fence with going, you should definitely attend. I attended one of Chuck's previous Tac Med classes and it was an incredible value for the money. While not as glamorous as a "Tactical shooting while bungee jumping" class, the lessons learned are important and the situations presented are far more likely to happen.
