  1. Tease.

    Here’s Global Security’s link for a .pdf of the TCCC Handbook pictured, in case you need it (and you DO need it), or to prep for class with Mosby:
    http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/library/report/call/call_10-44.pdf

    I hope you never need to use the knowledge.

  2. Good link. From the manual:

    Specifically, combat deaths result from the following:
    • 31 percent: Penetrating head trauma
    • 25 percent: Surgically uncorrectable torso trauma
    • 10 percent: Potentially correctable surgical trauma
    • 9 percent: Exsanguination
    • 7 percent: Mutilating blast trauma
    • 3–4 percent: Tension pneumothorax (PTX)
    • 2 percent: Airway obstruction/injury
    • 5 percent: Died of wounds (mainly infection and shock)
