Tactical combat casualty care (TCCC)
Students will learn the most current and effective methods for treating gunshot wounds and a multitude of life threating injuries that one might encounter in a gunfight or any other high-risk scenario. These techniques have been continually used and proven effective by police officers, military and first responders alike. Students will get hands-on experience throughout the class as they will practice these techniques at a number of workstations and through numerous scenarios.
Put simply, TCCC teaches students life saving interventions that will buy valuable time until further trauma care can be provided. Take the responsibility to learn how to save someone else’s life or your own in even the most dire of circumstances!
The guidelines cover: Care Under Fire (CUF), Tactical Field Care (TFC), Tactical Evacuation Care
The overall objective of TCCC is to teach service members how to effectively treat combat casualties while preventing additional casualties and completing the mission at hand. The three phases of TCCC include care under fire, tactical field care and tactical evacuation care.
* Care Under Fire (CUF) outlines strategies using limited medical equipment to render care at the point of injury while the first responder and the casualty are still under hostile fire.
* Tactical Field Care (TFC) provides casualty care guidelines once the first responder and the injured combatant are no longer under hostile fire.
* The Tactical Evacuation Care (TACEVAC) phase begins once the casualty has been transferred to a transport aircraft or vehicle. During this phase additional medical personnel and equipment may be available to provide augmented casualty care.
TCCC has been shown to be very effective in saving lives on the battlefield. For this reason in 2005, the United States Special Operations Command required TCCC training for all deploying combatants and not just medical personnel. The conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan have enabled the US Military to make numerous advances in battlefield care. This module will explain what TCCC is and why you need to learn about it. Our military presently has the best casualty treatment and evacuation system in history. TCCC is what will keep you alive long enough to benefit from it.
The key elements of TCCC include:
Aggressive use of tourniquets
Aggressive needle thoracostomy
Surgical airways for maxillofacial trauma
Tactically appropriate fluid resuscitation
IVs only when needed/IO access if required
Improved battlefield triple-option analgesia
Combine good tactics and good medicine
Combat medic input to guidelines
NOTE: You need to bring your own firearms (Pistol/Rifle) and ammo
