First of all the traditional flow chart.
This post is about WHAT you should be doing. To see HOW to do it and what to use reference Verox's post here
A note on this flow chart the 1/2/3 represent T1/T2/T3 which in ACE is represented by Red/Yellow/Green
So we begin
Are you under Effective Enemy Fire? (Effective Enemy Fire being fire that prevents you from continuing with your mission)
If so - FIGHT ON. The only way you can help that casualty is by removing the threat and securing the area
You are NOT under Effective Enemy Fire - Continue....
Actions on Casualty
- A - Assess - Assess the situation, how was the casualty caused? It is it safe for you to render aid? Remember YOU ARE NO USE TO THE CASUALTY AS A CASUALTY YOURSELF
- C - Communicate - Up/down/left/right, in short, tell everyone! Use both voice and any radio you have. Shouting "Casualty" is sufficient but adding in your element can add vital information "Casualty, 2 section!" (This is where things like repeating messages come into their own)
- T - Triage - Begin your assessment of the wounds to the casualty/casualties, sort them on urgency and mark them! (Red/Yellow/Green)
- C - Catastrophic Bleeds - USE TOURNIQUETS! Deal with any heavy bleeding immediately
- A - Airway - Check the Airway, clear if required (Not yet implemented)
- B - Breathing - Check breathing (ref the flowchart for numbers)
- C - Circulation - Check for further minor bleeding, recheck tourniquets and other bandages
- D - Disablities - Broken bones etc (Not yet implemented)
- E - Enviroment - Is the area secure/safe? Do you need to move the casualty/casualties?
Once you have dealt with the casualty continue to check their vitals and await a medic OR move them to the CCP.
