Advancement of prehospital care on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan is pushing a new approach to EMS. How should these experiences be implemented in the streets of EMS here at home? This lecture will look at some of the hot topics of tourniquet use, hemostatic agents, rearranging our ABC's to CBA, and many others with an interactive discussion.

1) Briefly describe military Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC)
