SSTI has mede this program Civilian Tactical Medic Friendly. The TCCC course is the military counterpart to the PHTLS course. It is designed for military medics, corpsmen, and pararescuemen who are preparing to deploy in support of combat operations. Casualty care on the battlefield must be the best possible combination of good medicine and good small-unit tactics.
The specifics of casualty care in the tactical setting will depend on the tactical situation, the injuries sustained by the casualty, the knowledge and skills of the first responder, and the medical equipment at hand. In contrast to a hospital Emergency Department setting where the patient IS the mission, on the battlefield, care of casualties sustained is only PART of the mission. TCCC recognizes this fact and structures its guidelines to accomplish three primary goals:
1. Treat the casualty
2. Prevent additional casualties
3. Complete the mission
The TCCC program was developed to customize the principles of good trauma care for successful use on the battlefield.
