2.0 out of 5 stars it is all about triage 28 Jun 2012
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
No nitty gritty just triage and perhaps something which the lawyers can agree upon. Do not waste your money on US army publications.

2.0 out of 5 stars Less then thrilled... 29 Feb 2012
By MonkezUncle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
I purchased expecting to receive a combat medic field refrence that just happens to have been written for Army medics. What I got was a book written for Army medics that just happens to have some combat medicine.

In all honesty, maybe I misunderstood the synopsis of the book but I expected a combat medicine field reference, meaning a quick cheat reference for things like drug dosages, long term care considerations when extract was not possible, walk-throughs for some of the less common more complex procedures that might be useful either in a combat or extended care situation where definitive care might be hours to days away. My hope was for a book I could throw in my bag as a front line resource, esp. when out of the country. Guess that won't happen. It's currently collecting dust on top of my refrigerator.

Yes, I am a medic. Yes, I am a medic instructor. Yes, I need to know/use combat medicine for my travels to less then savory zones. No, I am not in the Army.

Where this book fell down, for me, was that it was more of a reference for how to be a medic in the Army then anything really dealing with medicine per se. Pages and pages and pages of polices, rules, procedures, ranks, blah, blah, blah, blah. Not to insult the Army or it's rules but I really don't need to carry that in my bag.

Felt like this is was more of a manual you get after getting a job that set out the policies and goals of the organization then it was a Combat Medicine Reference.

Guess it's all about what you're looking for. Since it's not returnable, caveat emptor!

5.0 out of 5 stars Combat Medic Field Reference 18 Jan 2007
By J. Bean - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Spiral-bound
Well laid out. Has the information a 68W or other service medics/corpsmen will need after he/she leaves school. I wish I'd had this for my medics while I was in Iraq. Good reviews of trauma care and also a great section on sickcall complaints and basic treatments. Casey did a great job of putting this all together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for the new Corpsman or medic 27 Dec 2006
By Nicholas J. Nelsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
I cannot recommend this enough as the 1st book any junior Corpsman/medic purchase. The material is well written and easy to understand. I have spent 7+ years with Marine infantry battalions and have to say this is the best reference out there for the new guy. A good book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for training line medics, but little utility for treatment medics 17 April 2008
By Disciple of Hugeness - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
I bought this book prior to Iraq thinking that it would be useful for medic training. I found it was useful for line medic training, but did not have anything significant to contribute, in terms of Tactical Combat Casualty Care, required for treatment medics in a Level 1 or Level 2 facility. If you are a Battalion Surgeon looking for material to bring to Iraq, go ahead and skip this.
