"Medicine X” : 2 Day, $450
Some are calling it “Ambush Medicine”! What it’s called is not as important as what you’ll learn over the next two days. The next 16 hours will be spent 90% of the time on the range, either shooting, moving, communicating and/or slappin’ tourniquets on.
This course is based off of the “Care Under Fire” phase of the TCCC course. Each student will learn how and more importantly, when to care for the wounded while in immediate contact with one or multiple threats. This will be a fast-paced and physically demanding course.
Some of the subjects covered in Medicine “X” are:
- Care Under Fire principles and techniques.
- Casualty movement.
- Rescue rigging.
- Rapid trauma assessments, blood sweeps/claws.
- Proper use of tourniquets, pressure dressings, hemostatic agents.
- Self-aid and Buddy-aid.
- Live-fire and react-to-fire drills as single, double, and four person teams.
