Tactical Treatment of Gunshot and Knife Wounds

This is a unique opportunity to learn what steps to take to stabilize a victim of a gunshot wound or serious penetrating trauma (including knife wounds) for the 3-30 minutes it may take until the ambulance arrives. This may be a family member, innocent by-stander or even yourself. This class based on principles of tactical medicine is designed for home owners/defenders, firearm instructors, and police/security officers, concerned citizens, etc..
In this class you will learn critical anatomy, ballistic impact, managing the three major causes of death, using hemostatic agents, using tourniquets, putting together a trauma kit for home and vehicle and other topics to keep a person alive until help arrives. This class is presented both as classroom theory and practical hands on training. Be sure to bring a pen and paper for taking notes.

Welcome to the forum. An interesting first post, but it does violate our rules. It may have serious value, if needed, but if you wish to advertise on this site, you must see Big Ben first. You can reach him here :E-mail me at Ben.Sobieck@fwmedia.com. Good luck.
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.

I agree with Kel. It sounds like a great class. In fact the topic would make for a great thread here and article in D&DH. But you are asking for $80 per seat and not giving away the info, so you should pay for the ad.

Best of luck with your class. I wish it were in my area.

That seems like an awful lot of information to absorb and put into practice in 4 hours. It sounds much more than first aid.

In all fairness. The tactical/medical community has learned an amazing amount about penetrating trauma in the last decade and they have greatly expanded the use of clotting agents and things like the resQgard that are saving lives on the battlefield and in the streets. Furthermore, the military has developed systems to teach these things to young soldiers and foreign nationals with minimal medical knowledge. If it is actually being taught by CFD Medics, it is legit.

In all honesty, if someone has a significant penetrating wound in a remote location, the only thing your first aid class is going to do is give you something to do while you or your buddy bleeds to death.

I agree, being a first responder trained in high angle rope rescue, confined space rescue and everything in between... its a tall order to really do anything in a remote area when someone has some sort of major penetrating wound. I hope I never have to use my training in that situation.

In my opinion he is. Seems pretty cut and dried: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1364

...still an interesting subject though.
