Abstract : The Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) Guidelines are a set of trauma care guidelines customized for use in the pre-hospital combat setting. The Guidelines identify three stages of care: (1) care under fire; (2) tactical field care; and (3) tactical evacuation care ((TACEVAC). TCCC is currently used in training for medics by all Services in the Department of Defense (DoD) and by many U.S. coalition partners. The Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (CoTCCC), a work group of the Defense Health Board (DHB) Trauma and Injury Subcommittee, performs a quarterly review of current evidence demonstrating the successes and shortcomings of the TCCC Guidelines, and considers proposed updates and revisions.
