The execution of the Ranger mission profile in the Global War on Terrorism and our legacy tasks undoubtedly will increase the number of lethal wounds.Ranger leaders can significantly reduce the number of Rangers who die ofwounds sustained in combat by simply targeting optimal medical capability in close proximity to the point of wounding.

Survivability of the traumatized Ranger who sustains a wound in combat is in the hands of the first responding Ranger who puts a pressure dressing or tourniquet and controls the bleeding of his fallen comrade. Directing casualty response management and evacuation is a Ranger leader task- ensuring technical medical competence is a Ranger Medic task.A solid foundation has been built for Ranger leaders and medics to be successful in managing casualties in a combat environment.

An integrated team response from non-medical personnel and medical providers must be in place to care for the wounded Ranger. The Ranger First Responder, Squad EMT, Ranger Medic Advanced Tactical Practitioner, and Ranger leaders, in essence all Rangers must unite to provide medical care collectively, as a team, without sacrificing the flow and violence of the battle at hand.An integrated team approach to casualty response and care will directly translate to the reduction of the died of wounds rate of combat casualties and minimize the turbulence associated with these events in times of crisis.

The true success of the Ranger Medical Team will be defined by its ability to complete the mission and greatly reduce preventable combat death. Rangers value honor and reputation more than their lives, and as such will attempt to lay down their own lives in defense of their comrades. The Ranger Medic will do no less.Table of ContentsSubject PageSECTION ONERMED Mission Statement 1-1RMED Charter 1-2Review Committees 1-3Editorial Consultants & Contributors 1-4Key References 1-5RMED Scope of Practice 1-6RMED Standing Orders & Protocol Guidelines 1-8Casualty Assessment & Management 1-10Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) 1-17SECTION TWOTactical Trauma Assessment Protocol 2-1Medical Patient Assessment Protocol 2-2Airway Management Protocol 2-3Surgical Cricothyroidotomy Procedure 2-4King-LT D Supralaryngeal Airway Insertion Procedure 2-5Orotracheal Intubation Procedure 2-6Hemorrhage Management Procedure 2-7Tourniquet Application Procedure 2-8Hemostatic Agent Application Protocol 2-9Tourniquet Conversion Procedure 2-10Thoracic Trauma Management Procedure 2-11Needle Chest Decompression Procedure 2-12Chest Tube Insertion Procedure 2-13Hypovolemic Shock Management Protocol 2-14Saline Lock & Intravenous Access Procedure 2-15External Jugular Intravenous Cannulation Procedure 2-16Sternal Intraosseous Infusion Procedure 2-17Hypothermia Prevention & Management Kit Procedure 2-18Head Injury Management Protocol 2-19Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (Concussion) Management Protocol 2-20Seizure Management Protocol 2-21Spinal Cord Injury Management Protocol 2-22Orthopedic Trauma Management Protocol 2-23Burn Management Protocol 2-24Foley Catheterization Procedure 2-25Pain Management Protocol 2-26Anaphylactic Shock Management Protocol 2-2775th Ranger Regiment Trauma Management Team (Tactical)Ranger Medic HandbookRanger Medic Handbook 2007 Edition75th Ranger Regiment, US Army Special Operations CommandSubject PageSECTION TWO ContinuedHyperthermia (Heat) Management Protocol 2-28
