Military and Tactical Medicine

The United States Special Operations Command’s (USSOCOM) number one medical priority is eliminating loss of life on the battlefield. Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) Guidelines were developed by USSOCOM to ensure that special operations forces (SOF) units suffering casualties on the battlefield are able to respond with actions that provide the best casualty care consistent with the tactical environment and quality small unit tactics.

Wounding sustained by personnel operating in unconventional environments require aggressive and definitive intervention beginning with the non-medical operator and on to the medic.  Tactical Combat Casualty Care is the foundation for the delivery of unconventional casualty care in unconventional environments.
