TACTICAL FIRST AID + BLAST INJURY CARE

Today I received an email from InSights about changes to one of their classes:

InSights Training Center Tactical First Aid Featuring Caring For Blast Related Injuries On August 3, 2013

Bellevue, WA – InSights Training Center announced today that it added Blast Injuries Care to the Tactical First Aid class to be taught by Mike Shertz M.D. on August 3, 2013.

Following recent events we are reminded that we need to be prepared for injuries occurring to yourself and/or others during an active fight situation.  With these factors in mind, InSights Training Center has expanded it’s Tactical First Aid curriculum to now include caring for blast related injuries.

Most penetrating injuries are not immediately life-threatening. However, there are some injuries where death before the arrival of EMS is almost assured if not quickly and effectively managed.

Our 1-day Tactical First Aid class is designed to give you the knowledge and skill to identify and manage those immediately life-threatening injuries, whether they occur to you or another individual, while you are still engaged in the violent attack.

The cost of the Tactical First Aid class is $225. Students may register at http://insightstraining.com/view_course.asp?courseID=11.
