The U.S. Army’s official guide to map reading, determining location, and navigating. For a soldier, knowing where you are is a matter of life and death, and so it comes as no surprise that the Army has produced the most complete, clear, and thorough guide to map reading and navigation available. The book starts with a comprehensive explanation of the meaning and uses of maps, whether photographic, planimetric (standard-style), or topographic, then proceeds to the use of those maps, discussing compass techniques, celestial navigation, and determination of distance. There is a detailed section on interpreting topographic maps, with notes on tactical considerations for differing terrain, as well as determining the ease of movement through an area. The book’s crucial, well-illustrated chapters have invaluable information on: Training Strategy • Maps • Marginal Information and Symbols Grids • Scale and Distance • Direction • Overlays Aerial Photographs • Navigation Equipment and Methods Elevation Relief • Terrain Association • Mounted Land Navigation Navigation in Different Types of Terrain • Unit Sustainment There is also information on field sketching, the tricky art of map folding, units of measure and conversion factors, map symbols, orienteering, and the global positioning system (GPS).

FIELD MEDICAL SERVICE TECHNICIAN STUDENT HANDBOOK VERSION 4 1 With Block 1   2 Student Outlines And Visual Presentations

Over 2,300 total pages ... OVERVIEW Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) was developed to emphasize the need for continued improvement in combat pre-hospital care. The Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (CoTCCC) was established in 2001 and is part of the Defense Health Board. CoTCCC is a standing multi-service committee charged with monitoring medical developments in regards to practice, technology, pharmacology and doctrine. New concepts in hemorrhage control, airway management, fluid resuscitation, analgesia, antibiotics and other lifesaving techniques are important steps in providing the best possible care for our Marines and Sailors in combat. The TCCC guidelines are published every 4 years in the Prehospital Trauma Life Support manual. It has been recognized that TCCC guidelines and curriculum will need to change more often than the 4-year cycle of the PHTLS textbook publication. The National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) will include the updated TCCC guidelines and curriculum on its website as they are approved as a way to help get this new information out to the combat medical personnel in the military that need it. PRINCIPLES OF TACTICAL COMBAT CASUALTY CARE (TCCC) The principles of Tactical Combat Casualty Care are fundamentally different from those of traditional civilian trauma care, where most medical providers and medics train. These differences are based on both the unique patterns and types of wounds that are suffered in combat and the tactical conditions medical personnel face in combat. Unique combat wounds and tactical conditions make it difficult to determine which intervention to perform at what time. Besides addressing a casualty’s medical condition, responding medical personnel must also address the tactical problems faced while providing care in combat. A medically correct intervention at the wrong time may lead to further casualties. Put another way, “good medicine may be a bad tactical decision” which can get the rescuer and the casualty killed. To successfully navigate these issues, medical providers must have skills and training oriented to combat trauma care, as opposed to civilian trauma care. The specifics of casualty care in the tactical setting will depend on the tactical situation, the injuries sustained by the casualty, the knowledge and skills of the first responder, and the medical equipment at hand. In contrast to a hospital Emergency Department setting where the patient IS the mission, on the battlefield, care of casualties sustained is only PART of the mission. TCCC recognizes this fact and structures its guidelines to accomplish three primary goals: 1. Treat the casualty 2. Prevent additional casualties 3. Complete the mission In thinking about the management of combat casualties, it is helpful to divide care into three distinct phases, each with its own characteristics and limitations.

We are an institution of higher learning; we need to be the best with everything we do. We are preparing the next generation of heroes for the greatest fighting force on the planet - the 8404 Hospital Corpsman assigned to the United States Marine Corps. They operate at the tip-of-the spear providing combat medicine to our operational forces; they are critical to the success of the Navy & Marine Corps Medicine Team. What each one of us does on a daily basis matters, regardless of our job. We all contribute to the mission. No one job is more important than the other. If just one link (team member) in this chain fails to perform a portion of the mission to standard, we all fail. You have the ability to make a positive difference in peoples’ lives every day. Every member of this team should ask themselves, “Am I living by our core values and making decisions that are consistent with these values when I interact with students, staff and the American public.” Key points: - Know your chain of command and how to use it. You have not exhausted your chain of command at FMTB-West until the issue reaches me. - If you are lacking something to perform your mission, bring it to the attention of leadership so we can promptly address it. - Any safety issue should immediately be brought to leadership. - Continually strive to improve processes; ask for help before it’s too late (in all aspects of your life and career). - If you see a problem, fix it or bring it to the attention of someone who can. Don't ignore it. - Supporting each other is just as important as supporting the mission. - Continue the relentless pursuit of customer satisfaction; feedback is a valuable tool in life and career. - Basic military courtesy should be a part of everyday life. - Always strive to do the right thing, even when no one is looking or when tempted to take the “easy” wrong. As a leader, I believe all members of the team are important. Our civilian shipmates are essential to the success of our mission. As a military leader, I believe, as the Sailor creed says, “I proudly serve my country's Navy combat team with Honor, Courage and Commitment. I am committed to excellence and the fair treatment of all”. I cannot over emphasize the importance of leadership from E-1 to O-6, everyone has a part; I expect officers to lead from the front by setting the example. Be sure that regularly scheduled performance counseling sessions are conducted for military and civilian employees. Cover the good which should be sustained as well as the areas which need improvement. Although I like to be informed, I believe in allowing leaders to lead, managers to manage. A big part of my job is to provide you the support systems necessary for you to accomplish your mission. Tell me what you need and don't worry how it will be resourced. Let me worry about that.
