Tactical First Aid and “System Collapse” Medicine - Feb 26 ***SOLD OUT*** 

This hands-on class will develop proficiency in basic battlefield medical skills utilizing the latest military Tactical Combat Casualty Care protocols.

Students will learn to stop traumatic bleeding from gunshot, knife wounds and blast injuries using the latest pressure bandages, tourniquets, and hemostatic agents.  The improvisation of functional substitutes for this equipment will be practiced extensively to give students the ability to respond to emergencies quickly, even if no dedicated first aid kits or bandaging material are available.  Self-care, buddy-care, and care under fire will also be addressed.

Students will also learn simple patient assessment techniques, as well as how to treat both a sucking chest wound and tension pneumothorax.  Options for opening a patient’s airway are discussed and practiced.  Students will learn how to use a nasopharyngeal airway (NPA).  In addition, students will learn how to treat themselves and family members in the event of a longer-term breakdown in our current medical system.  Wound cleaning, disinfection, and wound closure (including minor suturing and stapling) methods in austere conditions will be practiced in our "trauma lab".  If time permits, students will integrate all of these skills in several practical scenarios.

The instructor will provide students with information about what types of drugs to stockpile for natural disasters, international travel, or a health care system collapse, along with methods for legally acquiring those pharmaceuticals.  Students will leave the class knowing what items should be included in a comprehensive medical kit and how to improvise those items in an austere environment.

All materials for the class will be provided by the instructor.

Class will run 9 am until 5 pm with a 30 minute lunch break.
