    Tactical Medicine - Gunshot and trauma care

    Saturday, February 12, 2011
    Clark County Shooting Park
    Las Vegas, NV
    9:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.

    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
    Tension pneumothorax
    CPR –When and when not
    Triage in a multi-victim situation
    When and how to move a patient

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

    This course will have a live fire range component where students will apply their tacmed skills in a stressful yet safe environment.
    Students who do not wish to shoot may still participate in the training scenarios.

    All students should wear comfortable clothing and shoes suitable for moderate outdoor physical activity.
    It is highly likely that participants will get blood simulant on clothing and gear.

    Course fee (includes training materials): $150

    We may put some clips up on the website later. Usually just use the video for debriefing after the exercises.
