TCCC Day 2 .. It’s a wrap! Leaders will emerge in chaos. Was a pleasure to work and train with some great LEOs from around New England for the past couple days. @tacdynamics and @definitveoperationalcare TCCC was delivered in an intense package that challenged each officer to perform in a fast-paced and in-depth #tccc 2 day program. Stay frosty, stay hungry, stay safe 🇺🇸

Running a @tacmed_solutions Velcro on concealment set-up on my concealment vest. A little bulky under a Class A style uniform but very comfortable and unnoticeable with BDUs. Easily holds #blowoutkit #tourniquet and scissors.

Emergencies come in many shapes and sizes so make sure you’re ready for whatever the weekend has in store for you!

This is the first aid kit that normally rides in my truck although it sometimes goes other places with me. Just thought I would share this for those interested in putting one together for their family. By the way practically all the components and knowledge for the design and layout of this kit come from @tacmed_solutions, @rescue_craft and @tramedic_response_system. I highly recommend their products!

When DIET is right, medicine is of no need. When DIET is wrong, medicine is of no use! 😉

Starting a useful reading with my favorite type of food #sushi #ditchmedicine #warriorpath #beer #budweiser

Finding your own place in life is crucial. Some of us are born with a purpose, some others spend their whole time trying to find one.
I consider myself lucky as I have always clearly seen my path ahead of me, challenging it was all I had to do.

I have never experienced a more rewarding feeling than getting to somebody who is on the brink of death and then use hard gained knowledge, skills and a good dose of luck to reverse the situation and change the odds.

Every hero needs a savior, and even playing that part once in your life is gonna change everything else after.

Grazie, grazie, grazie.

Great repost from @maccheronimedic - Jugular sticks are often an overlooked solution!
If you don't have an IO, or want to save it, and your patient is SAF (shocky as f**k) give it a shot!

I have to thank a Finnish anesthesiologist for pushing me to become proficient in them.

Tip of the day:
Before starting connect a syringe with nacl to the catheter and needle, it s gonna help you see the blood return in low bp patients and it s gonna prevent the risk of air embolism (very very low). REPOST are welcome, share the science!

Learn all this an more @raggededgesolutions #darkwoods and @maccheronimedic keep them coming #knowledgeispower !

Repost from @_mikemedic_ - Imagine you find yourself trapped into a fight or flight situation: you have a patient lying in front of you on a stretcher and he is bleeding, heavily. You have tried everything textbooks and classrooms have taught you. You are a professional and you have done it right and yet, the red stuff is hitting the floor.

This is when the most important skill for survival, both yours and the patient's, comes into play: adaptability, the quality of being able to adjust to new conditions.

This is a patient myself and my team managed in a real-world situation, without a medical facility in the 2+ hours radius and without the chance to fly him out. The only transport available was the back of an empty ambulance, without anybody to keep the vital pressure on his neck shrapnel wound. It was then that our own adaptability came into play and made us tackle the unconventional solution you see in the picture: a Foley catheter. Foleys are normally used to allow urine to flow outside the bladder, however, we inserted one into the wound cavity to tamponade the bleeder. The bleeding was successfully controlled and the patient survived after a rough, bumpy journey through some long desert roads.

When the situation gets real you don't elevate yourself to it, but you fall to your level of training. Adaptability, like any other skill, needs to be specifically addressed in training and within your scope of practice. This is especially true if you are a pre-hospital provider, an EMT, a remote medic or simply a bystander in a disastrous accident. For your survival and your patients'. If you are interested in knowing more about this case and many other more do not forget to register for the Special Operations Medicine Scientific Assembly, where you will hear me as a speaker for multiple lectures.

Full credit to Ty, Josh, Pete, Rico and the rest of the team. Another case solved for M**** Medics!
