Field Emergency Medicine / Practical Considerations in a Field Environment
An intensive, practical approach to fundamental concepts, conducted within the framework of BLS (Basic Life Support) and TCCC (Tactical Combat Casualty Care), and reinforced with hands-on exercises geared toward basic airway maintenance, hemorrhage and pain control, peripheral IV/IO placement, splinting, suturing, positioning, immobilization, and ground/air transport. Emphasis will be placed on recognition and management of immediate life threats. The student will be exposed to a variety of scenarios, techniques, equipment and supplies, and begin to develop a medical kit, tailored to their own situation.

A RECENT STUDENT HAD THIS TO SAY…
I wanted to personally thank you for taking the time and effort to put together one of the finest courses I have ever been a part of, the Field Emergency Medicine course. The scope of expertise and diversity of knowledge brought by the team of instructors was second to none. I feel like I’ve been to medical school. In fact a good description of the class may be: The most important combat and civilian emergency medicine condensed into three intensive days.
Regarding the importance of this class, the way I look at it is this:
- If you own a gun you must take this course.
- If you care about those you love you must take this course.
- To think that someone you cherish will never be injured is not only foolish but negligent.
- To think EMS can always respond in time is unrealistic.
- To watch a loved one die because you did not take the time to get properly trained is unacceptable.
Thank you again.
