Tactical First Aid

Most penetrating injuries are not immediately life-threatening. However, there are some injuries where death before the arrival of EMS is almost assured if not managed correctly and rapidly. If such injuries occur to yourself or another during an ongoing fight, recognition and concise management of the injuries becomes critical.

This course is designed to give you the knowledge and skill necessary to identify and manage those immediately life-threatening injuries, whether they occur to you or another individual, while you are still engaged in the violent attack.

Students will take turns role-playing the casualty, and as such they will have simulated wounds applied and fake theatrical blood will be used (which can lightly stain skin for a few days).

Subjects Covered:

  • The true nature of civilian gunshot wounds, their low lethality and realities of their medical management.
  • How to rapidly determine the relative seriousness of an injury and how that will affect your tactical treatment plan
  • The concept of "care under fire" and how it differs from a non-tactical medical situation
  • Techniques for moving casualties to a safer environment
  • Basic airway and ventilation assessment and management within a tactical setting
  • Assessment and management of bleeding and shock
  • Assessment and management of penetrating and blunt trauma
  • How to prepare a tactical first aid kit that will dramatically increase your treatment capabilities

Required Equipment:
