The Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) course introduces evidence-based, life-saving techniques and strategies for providing the best trauma care on the battlefield. NAEMT conducts TCCC courses under the auspices of its PHTLS programme, the recognised world
leader in pre-hospital trauma education.
NAEMT’s TCCC courses use the PHTLS Military textbook and are fully compliant with the Department of Defence Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (CoTCCC) guidelines. It is the only TCCC course endorsed by the American College of Surgeons. The 2-day provider course is designed for combat EMS/military personnel, including medics, corpsmen, and para-rescue personnel deploying in support of combat operations. The course’s content and structure also can be modified for law enforcement special weapons and tactics and special response teams.
The course uses lessons learnt from recent military operations to teach students to respond to incidents outside the routine clinical operating environment.
Subjects taught include:
- Strategies for treating wounded responders in threatening environments
- Haemorrhage control
- Surgical airway management and needle decompression
- Practical movement of casualties in hostile environments.
