TRAUMA FIRST AID
Combat Major Traumatic Injuries
Do your personnel have the training and tools needed to save themselves, fellow first responders, or the public that have sustained traumatic life-threatening injuries?
MED Response tactical first aid concepts have been developed through 20 + years of paramedic education and tactical emergency care experience. Our instructors are current and experienced providers with backgrounds that include ambulance, combat and industrial care providers.
MED Response delivers training in Trauma First Aid that provides you with the skills needed to combat “preventable causes of traumatic death.” Students will learn to stop traumatic life-threatening bleeding using the latest pressure bandages, arterial tourniquets, wound packing and haemostatic dressings. This course also covers the management of hypothermia, rapid patient assessment, respiratory distress and the use of a vented chest seal.
