TRAUMA CARE AND IMMEDIATE RESPONSE -MILITARY
Military personnel experience diverse and often dangerous operational and environmental challenges unlike any other. The “Must Have’s,” Three Phases of TCCC, Reassessment, 4-Points of Performance, and Casualty Movement are a few of the topics covered in this three-day immersion course. Day-1 of TCAIR-MIL is focused on military operations-centric trauma management, tools, techniques, and treatment procedures. Training prepares operators for first response to physical trauma and medical emergencies on the battlefield and in austere environments. Day-2 encompasses multiple skills stations and hands-on practical exercises to enhance skill development and retention. Day-3 is scenario-based training designed to expose students to more significant ambiguity, fluidity, and decision-making. Through the use of moulage, non-lethal training munitions, trained role-players, varying conditions of light, and a multitude of other artificial stressors, training is brought into a whole new realm of realism and effectiveness. All PFC TCAIR training is recognized by NAEMT, the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians. Successful completion of TCAIR-MIL earns graduates their Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) Certification, valid for three years. If you are active-duty military, this medical training is a must.
PRE-HOSPITALIZATION TRAUMA LIFE SUPPORT (PHTLS)
Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support courses are designed to improve the quality of first responder trauma care and decrease mortality. This academic program is based on pre-hospital trauma care principles, emphasizing the treatment of multi-symptom trauma patients with specific needs. PHTLS promotes critical thinking as the foundation for providing quality care. It is based on the belief that given a good base of knowledge and principles, EMS practitioners are capable of making reasonable decisions regarding patient care. This PHTLS course is continuously updated and revised to remain current with advances in the field, ATLS Guidelines, and real-world feedback from PHTLS participants. Graduates will receive a PHTLS 4-year certification through the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) along with 16 continuing education credit hours towards recertification. This training is a must for any EMS provider.
