After a few discussions with JJ who has also appeared in several Element Rescue podcasts, Doug and Dennis talk about using evidence based medicine whenever possible and what to do when no prospective randomized controlled trials exist for a specific problem you face. With such a wide scope of practice while deployed and a lack of protocols SF medics are often faced with unique situations in which they must actually weigh the evidence, best practice, guidelines and expert consensus against the given situation. This is a great responsibility not entrusted to many other combat arms troops. In order to weigh the evidence you must first be aware it exists and how to interpret what you are reading. This will help get you on the right path in making informed decisions.

Not all PFC is trauma.  Malaria, Dengue, Chikungunya and others will take you out of the fight if given the chance.  In this episode CAPT Ryan Maves talks about some of the more concerning and prevalent diseases encountered by deployed military personnel and partner forces and what you can do about it before an infection becomes life threatening. .  

A few things to remember from the episode:

  • History and assessment are key in identifying tropical diseases. Remember to consider both history of exposures as well as the accompanying syndromes in formulating a differential diagnoses.  
  • Malaria treatment consists of Malerone, Coartem or both. 
  • No one dies without Doxycycline!

Why do we care about sepsis in prolonged field care?  What can we do about septic shock with what we are normally carrying on a deployment?  How do you mix an epinephrine drip?  Dr. Maves lays it all out in about 20 minutes.

So what is different than what we already have in the THOR recommendations, the JTS DCR clinical Practice Guideline and the Ranger Regiment TDCR? No hextend?! Calcium with the 1st unit of blood?! TXA slow push?! What if the patient is not responding to resuscitation efforts? This is a guideline truly written for the Medic working despite lack of help or resources in an austere environment...

When properly and safely administered regional anesthesia can augment your limited supply of narcotics and ketamine. It can also preserve your patient's mental status while providing targeted pain relief. This can be accomplished using a nerve stimulator and the techniques found in the Military Advanced Regional Anesthesia and Analgesia Handbook.  If you have a portable ultrasound machine and a little practice you can also use the techniques found in the videos made available in by the New York School of Regional Anesthesia.
