Stop the Bleed, Introduction to Emergency Casualty Care

This course is designed to take the student through the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Stop the Bleed program and introduce them to the principles and approach of Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC). What is unique about high threat medical principles is less about what is done medically and more about when it is done, what injuries on focused on, and what can be excluded.

A bleeding injury can happen anywhere. We’ve all seen it happen too often; on the news or in everyday life. Life-threatening bleeding can happen in people injured in serious accidents or disasters. Instead of being a witness, you can become an immediate responder because you know how to STOP THE BLEED. You’ll gain the ability to recognize life-threatening bleeding and act quickly and effectively to control bleeding once you learn three quick techniques. Become empowered to make a life or death difference when a bleeding emergency happens.

TECC has applications for ALL high risk operations, where there is a real and on-going risk to both the patient and provider. Examples of high risk operations include, but are not limited to:

  • Wilderness medicine
  • Active shooter response
  • Vehicle Accident
  • Law enforcement ‘officer down’ response
  • Disaster medical support
  • Response to explosive mass casualty
  • All other mass casualty response

Successful students will learn how to apply life-saving trauma skills, phases of casualty care, and how to perform rapid trauma assessments. They will earn an ACS Stop the Bleed certification and an Introduction to TECC certificate.

This dynamic class combines Emergency Casualty Care training with disabled/disadvantage shooting positions.  The course is open to all experienced practitioners.  Tac Pistol 1P or similar course preferred prior to enrollment.

Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) is the civilian evolution and application of the military Tactical Combat Casualty Care guidelines (TCCC). Military units that have trained all of their members in TCCC have documented the lowest incidence of preventable deaths among their casualties in the history of modern warfare. TCCC-based pre-hospital trauma training is now becoming widespread in the US civilian sector as well. TECC is the civilian evolution and application of the military TCCC guidelines. Overall, the principles of TECC are not difficult to teach – the actual medical interventions such as pressure dressings and tourniquets are now commonplace for everyday trauma. What is unique about high threat medical principles is less about what is done medically and more about when it is done, what injuries on focused on, and what can be excluded.

Although the word ‘tactical’ in common use implies law enforcement associated operations, every first responder utilizes ‘tactics’ on every call every day. The word tactical refers to the operational decisions that are made during response.  Every one of these operational decisions has an effect on medical care and the competing priorities of operations and medical care need to be considered in real time. TECC allows you to do just this.

TECC has applications for ALL high risk operations, where there is a real and on-going risk to both the patient and provider. Examples of high risk operations include, but are not limited to:

  • Active shooter response
  • Wilderness medicine
  • Confined space, rope and other technical rescue operations
  • Law enforcement ‘officer down’ response
  • SWAT medical support
  • Response to explosive mass casualty
  • All other mass casualty response

As situations both local and abroad become more intense, Operators must how to conduct various weapons drills such as loading, combat reloading, clearing malfunctions with either hand, independent of the other hand.  In this course you will link the newly learned TECC skills with disabled/disadvantage shooting situations to prepare for the worse.  We will put you “in the fight” and teach you to work through various life or death situations.
