Tactical Combat Casualty Care Three Stages of TCCC

"Care Under Fire" refers to care rendered at the scene of the injury while both the medic and the casualty are under effective hostile fire. The risk of additional injuries being sustained at any moment is extremely high for both casualty and rescuer. Available medical equipment is limited to that carried by each operator and the medic.

"Tactical Field Care" is the care rendered once the casualty and his unit are no longer under effective hostile fire. It also applies to situations in which an injury has occurred on a mission, but hostile fire has not been encountered. Medical equipment is still limited to that carried into the field by mission personnel. Time prior to extraction may range from a few minutes to many hours.

“Casualty Evacuation (CASEVAC) Care” is the care rendered while the casualty is being evacuated by an aircraft, ground vehicle, or boat for transportation to a higher echelon of care. Any additional personnel and medical equipment pre-staged in these assets will be available during this phase.

Tactical Combat Casualty Care Care Under Fire Management Plan

Basic TCCC Management Plan

Care Under Fire

1. Expect casualty to stay engaged as a combatant if appropriate

2. Return fire as directed or required

3. Try to keep yourself from being shot

4. Try to keep the casualty from sustaining additional wounds

5. Airway management is generally best deferred until the Tactical Field Care phase

6. Stop any life-threatening external hemorrhage:

Use a tourniquet for extremity hemorrhage

For non-extremity wounds, apply pressure and/or a HemCon® dressing

 7. Communicate with the patient if possible

Offer reassurance, encouragement

Explain first aid actions
