How combat medicine is revolutionizing civilian prehospital care
In 1996, a revolutionary concept occurred in military medicine. Until then, battlefield prehospital trauma care followed the same guidelines developed for the urban U.S. civilian environment. But following the October 3, 1993, Battle of Mogadishu1, the U.S. Special Operations Command sponsored a study to review how casualty care was conducted. The panel’s consensus: Conventional civilian medicine was not appropriate for optimizing casualty care within the tactical environment.
