First Aid Evaluation Flowchart

Monday, 03 December 2012 00:00

Have you ever wondered which first aid steps you will need to conduct if you walk up on a casualty, or one of your family or group members is injured? Or, what about the order of first aid tasks; which tasks have higher priority over others? Instead of recreating the wheel, we have put together a flowchart based on the U.S. Army's Evaluate the Casualty procedure (FM 4-25.11, First Aid), also known as Tactical Casualty Combat Care (TC3). Please download our guide, and put inside your Individual First Aid Kit (IFAK).

Handout: First Aid Evaluation Flowchart

Why we put this Together

Having nearly 14 years of military related experience, and over five years of combat experience, I know the importance of first aid, especially treating trauma related injuries. While, the Evaluate the Casualty process is directed towards battlefield and training related injuries, it also provides a great, time-tested and proven way of working through medical evaluation steps necessary to assist a casualty; the same process can also be used by us "Civilians."

The chart clearly identifies the steps necessary to evaluate a patient, identifies areas where you will need additional training, and is the framework of future Prepper Link medical handouts.
