  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.

    • 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)
