Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC)

Welcome to Tactical Combat Casualty Care or TCCC. History has shown us many differences in the way civilians care for casualties and the way the military care for casualties on the front lines.

With the unfortunate increase of terrorist attacks, private sector violence and natural disasters, both military personnel and civilians benefit from Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC). Knowing what to do after a mass shooting or explosion can save not only your life but increase the chance of survival for those that are injured.

Trauma Training FX's mobile training team brings current life saving techniques to its clients. The crawl, walk, run training model is followed which enables those with little or no medical experience to confidently finish training knowing that he or she is equipped to save lives.

Basic tccc training

TCCC divides the care into three distinct phases of care:

  1. Care Under Fire
  2. Tactical Field Care
  3. Tactical Evacuation Care

Our basic TCCC course of instruction will take the student through:

Basic Anatomy and Physiology - The student will learn the basic underlying structures in the human body that will provide a base to build from.

The Phases of Care - A standardized approach in caring for a casualty is taught so that the non-medical person can understand and apply life saving principles.

Control of Major Bleeding - We will teach our client the most rapid way to control arterial bleeding. This is the "Number One Leading Preventable Cause of Death on the Battlefield".

Airway - Learn how to protect the airway.

Breathing - The "Second Leading Preventable Cause of Death on the Battlefield" is a tension pneumothorax. You will be able to recognize and treat this injury.

Abdominal Trauma - Learn what you able to do to provide care for an injury in the abdominal region.

Bandaging and Splinting - You will learn how to control non-life threatening bleeding and support underlying fractures, as well as open fractures.

Head and Spine Trauma - In the out-of-the-hospital- setting, we will give you the training to care and manage this casualty.

Eye Injuries - Our students learn how to treat an injury to the eye.

Each training program is specifically tailored to meet the client's needs. The TCCC guidelines are followed to ensure standard care is maintained. Material can be created for clients in need of training in topics that are not covered in the regular TCCC presentation.

Intermediate Training

Trauma Training FX offers a three(3) day intermediate training program for our clients who have completed the beginner TCCC basic life saving course of instruction. The intermediate course of instruction is designed to be a refresher course for TCCC so our client can continue to "fine-tune" the basic life saving skills. We follow the adage, "If you don't use it, you will lose it" principle. Additionally, our client will be taught the behind the scenes effect of traumatic injuries to the human body and what is happening on the cellular level.

Tactical Combat Casualty Care - Refresher training of the basic life saving principles and techniques.

Anatomy & Physiology - Cellular level reactions the human body goes through when trauma is inflicted.

Circulation - Cellular reactions to battlefield trauma.

Airway Management - More advance airway protection will be taught with intubation.

Breathing - Gas exhange at the cellular level when the body is traumatically injured.

Head and Spine Trauma - How the brain and nervous system responds to traumatic injury.

Shock - An in depth look at the stages of shock.

Psychological Effect of Battlefield Trauma - Physiology of stress and how the body responds. How does this stress complicate trauma? How does this stress complicate performance?

Musculoskeletal Injuries - A hands on approach to learn how to easily diagnose levels of sprain and strain injuries, and be able to effectively treat them in the field. Learn how to reduce dislocations in the field. You will learn how to implement preventative measures during pre-deployment work up phases to limit soft tissue and joint injuries.

Trauma Lanes - To complete the training, trauma lanes will be run on the last day. A final Scenario Based FTX can be implemented at the request of our client.
