An Introductory To Law Enforcement Emergency Care
by Ian McDevitt
Tactical Medicine is a detailed crash course in the administration of emergency
care under the most life-threatening conditions. Packed with invaluable information
and insights from a veteran tactical medic, this book is an excellent introduction
to providing critical medical care when lives hang in the balance – both yours
and your patient's. You will learn the three stages of tactical medicine,
the vital priorities of administering care under fire, the realities of
setting up an efficient triage system, the must-have equipment and supplies for
a tactical medicine kit and the best methods for transporting your gear while on the scene.
Whether you are a medic assigned to a SWAT team or military unit, an EMT thinking of
entering law enforcement or a student who is interested in this dynamic field of medicine,
this book is a fantastic reference.
