Tactical Combat Casualty Care

by A.J.

Well I just recently returned from the Joint Special Operations Medical Training Course and School to re-certify and get some of the latest info on any changes and where we are at in the field. Obviously to be a tactical athlete it is allot more than training for triathlons and carrying and M-4 and the real difference is the tactics. Medical skill is a huge combat multiplier and when it really hits the fan it is nice to have some basic skills to save some lives. I did not intend this to be an exhaustive medical training guide but instead a very basic review that can be used with additional more detailed installments included later. This is definitely a work in progress and with feed back and questions I would like to create a great discussion to help the guys who don’t have training otherwise. So please leave any comments and questions I think this could turn into something really helpful.
