Prolonged Field Care Podcasts


Rick Hines has spent the last 20+ years in service to his country much of it deployed to combat zones and other unstable, austere environments and is dedicated to improving SOF Medicine.  He made it a point to spend a fair amount of time with surgical teams when possible and has gained quite a bit of real world knowledge that we hope to pass on to a wider audience here.

Burns present another wound pattern that can be extremely difficult and time consuming for any level of provider to manage.  So much so that there are dedicated burn teams that will often fly to where burn patients are being held in order to get them back to the burn center in San Antonio with the best chance of survival.  We have taken the expert guidance of these critical care providers and packaged everything they have learned into a single clinical practice guideline targeted at the medic and other Role 1 Providers who might find themselves sitting on a patient at a Battalion Aid Station or team house before evacuation is available.  Initial priorities such as estimating percentage of body surface area burned, starting fluid resuscitation with the rule of 10s, foley placement along with many others may determine the mortality and morbidity of your patient.
