Ranger First Responder and Potentially Survivable Injuries: Fresh Whole Blood Transfusions at the Point of Injury | Havok Journal

No other unit in the last 13 years has made more improvements and contributions to Army medicine and combat casualty care than the 75th Ranger Regiment. For over a decade, the Regiment has influenced the Department of Defense (DoD), the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (CoTCCC), and the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT), leading the way in developing groundbreaking tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that save lives in combat.  Two of the Ranger Regiment’s TTPs that influenced the area of combat casualty care are the use of ketamine at the point of injury and the DoD casualty card.
