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.
