TCCC ( Tactical Combat Casualty Care )
Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) has saved hundreds of lives during NATO operations Nearly 90% of all combat fatalities occur before the casualty reaches a medical treatment facility, and it is clear that the prehospital phase of care is the focus of efforts to reduce deaths in combat.
Guidelines for TCCC are the standard of care for the modern battlefield. It was first present in the US Army, and are now implemented in all NATO forces. The guidelines cover: Care Under Fire (CUF), Tactical Field Care (TFC) and Tactical Evacuation Care (TACEVAC). These recommendations are intended to be guidelines only and are not a substitute for clinical judgment.
