    Haven't really spoken too much on this subject, but would like to open the door. TCCC stands for Tactical Combat Casualty Care. It is a set of medical protocols for treating battlefield trauma. The protocols are less invasive than some standard/typical emergancy medical stabilization methods giving professional medical staff a better chance of stabilizing the patient. The concepts are to maintain airways, stop hemorrhaging and move the patient onto professional help as quickly as possible. This is information that everyone of us should understand and be current with. Here is a good YouTube channel outlining some TCCC Protocols

    I went through the course in 2014 and again in 2015. There’s a lot that doesn’t relate to civilian life (needle decompression, fluid therapy) but the tourniquet and airway portions were spot on!

    Decompression could relate to civilian life, depending on how far away EMS are.
