NATO faces several challenges if Combat Casualty Care is to be improved further, especially if a smaller foot print is one future planning factor. In 45 papers and 29 posters the RTO-HFM 182 symposium on Use of Advanced Technology and New Procedures in Medical Field Operations has presented valuable and promising possibilities. Further, this symposium has presented lessons learned especially from Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. The volcanic eruption on Iceland served as a pertinent reminder of our own vulnerability in addition to the need to identify all limiting factors. To fully evaluate all possibilities and weaknesses more emphasis must be put on robust and relevant indicators. A NATO Trauma Registry would be key.
