SSTI is going to be providing Tactical Combat Casualty Care Provider andTactical Combat Casualty Care Instructor Course the Weekend prior to the Texas EMS Conference
This course is an unofficial Pre Texas EMS Conference Card course in Austin.
Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) is based on performing skills that address the preventable causes of death that have plagued War-fighters and LEO since violence was first utilized by man.
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. The need for a standing committee to ensure that the TCCC guidelines are updated as necessary to reflect both new advances in prehospital medicine and battlefield experience with TCCC was identified in the original 1996 TCCC paper. The CoTCCC was established in 2001 and is now part of the Defense Health Board. The TCCC guidelines are published every 4 years in the Prehospital Trauma Life Support manual. It has been recognized that TCCC guidelines and curriculum will need to change more often than the 4-year cycle of the PHTLS textbook publication. NAEMT will include the updated TCCC guidelines and curriculum on its website as they are approved as a way to help get this new information out to the combat medical personnel in the military who need it.
